Aam Aadmi Party convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday, 4 August, said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is “horrified” by the growth of AAP in Gujarat and questioned if the saffron party will field Union Home Minister Amit Shah as its chief ministerial candidate in the upcoming state Assembly elections.

Kejriwal also questioned whether the BJP was happy with CM Bhupendra Patel.

In a tweet in Hindi, the AAP chief wrote:

“AAP is growing rapidly in Gujarat. The BJP is horrified. Is it true that BJP is going to declare Amit Shah ji as CM face in the upcoming assembly elections in Gujarat? Is BJP also angry with Bhupendrabhai Patel's work?”

AAP is the first party to release its first list of 10 nominees for the Gujarat polls which, it claimed on 2 August, included members of Scheduled Tribe, backward, and Scheduled Caste communities.

The schedule for the Assembly elections is not yet decided by the Election Commission but the polls are scheduled to be held in December this year.

AAP had hinted that it might contest all the 182 seats in Gujarat.
