Before the Gujarat assembly elections, AAP MP Raghav Chadha has been made co-in-charge of Gujarat. Raghav Chadha was given a big responsibility in the AAP conference.
New Delhi: Now only a few months are left for the assembly elections in Gujarat. In such a situation, the political parties have tightened their gears. In fact, the Aam Aadmi Party is putting a lot of emphasis in the election campaign this time. In the past, the Aam Aadmi Party has been making big promises to woo the voters by holding many big rallies and election prospects. Meanwhile, Aam Aadmi Party has appointed MP Raghav Chadha as co-in-charge of Gujarat.
Raghav Chadha has always proved himself in the Aam Aadmi Party. Be it any front. Raghav Chadha has worked in important positions in Delhi and Punjab. Chadha has also been the co-in-charge of the Aam Aadmi Party in the Punjab Assembly elections. He is considered an efficient politician and administrator. The face, which is very popular among the youth, is being sent to Gujarat because there has been a lot of positive feedback from the workers and leaders about it.
Whispers of the Arvind Kejriwal-led party looking to field a big youth leader to spearhead its campaign in Gujarat, where it couldn’t win even one seat in the last assembly elections, were doing the rounds earlier as well.
Raghav Chadha has shouldered big responsibilities both in Delhi and Punjab. The party also sees him as a very popular face among the youth, which it is courting with promises of a better future with better education, jobs, and business opportunities.
A win in Gujarat, where elections are due later this year, is critical for the party to realise its national aspirations. Party chief Arvind Kejriwal has made multiple visits to the state, even pulling his deputy Manish Sisodia along, to showcase his ‘Delhi model’ of development. Braving sharp attacks from the BJP, and even Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself, about ‘revdi’ (freebies) culture, the party has promised jobs for all, free power and water, and improvements in health and education sectors if voted to power in Gujarat. AAP has also announced fixed salary for village heads.
Mr Kejriwal has been pitching AAP as the main rival of the BJP — a space so far occupied by the Congress.
“There are people who don’t want BJP rule in the state, and they also don’t like voting for the Congress. We have to get their votes as we are the only alternative to BJP in the State,” he was quoted as saying to members of his state unit.
The Congress had put up a strong challenge to the BJP in the 2017 Gujarat assembly elections, winning 77 of the state’s 182 seats. The BJP ended up with a tally of 99.
