AAP declared on Sunday that its chief ministerial candidate, Isudan Gadhvi, will be contesting from the "sacred territory of Lord Krishna" in the upcoming Gujarat elections.
New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party declared on Sunday that its chief ministerial candidate, Isudan Gadhvi, will be contesting from the “sacred territory of Lord Krishna” in the upcoming Gujarat elections.
In order to increase its presence across the country, the party would field the 40-year-old candidate from Jam Khambhalia in the Devbhumi Dwarka district. According to Hindu mythology, Lord Krishna had relocated to Dwarka, which means “portal to paradise” in its exact translation, after murdering and defeating his uncle Kansa at Mathura. It draws a sizable number of devotees from all across the country as a pilgrimage site.
“Isudan Gadhvi, who has been speaking up for farmers, unemployed young women, and businesspeople for many years, will fight elections from Khambhalia.”
Gujarat will receive a new and effective chief minister from the holy land of Lord Krishna, as Arvind Kejriwal announced in a Hindi tweet.
Gadhvi expressed gratitude to Arvind Kejriwal in reaction to the post. He stated in the tweet, which was loosely translated from Hindi, “The faith that you and the people of Gujarat have placed on me… I assure you that I would serve the people of Gujarat till my last breath.”
In Gujarat, people have supported the same party (BJP) for more than 20 years, the AAP is positioning itself as the main opposition to the BJP, which is now in power. Polling will be held in Gujarat on December 1 and 5, and counting will take place on December 8.
