Aam Aadmi Party on Sunday announced their latest list of candidates for 12 seats in the Gujarat Assembly elections due this year-end. This is their fifth list of candidates, they have so far announced 53 candidates for the upcoming polls.
While releasing the list, AAP Gujarat president Gopal Italia said his party has set an example by announcing the names of candidates much in advance with an idea to allow them to get enough time to reach out to the public.
As per the list, Rajesh Pandoriya is the AAP candidate from Bhuj, Jayantibhai Parnami from Idar, Ashok Gajea from Nikol, Jasvant Thakor from Sabarmati, Sanjay Bhatasna from Tankara, Valjibhai Makwana from Kodinar (SC), Ravjibhai Vaghela from Mahuda, Udeysinh Chauhan from Balasinor, Banabhai Damor from Morva Hadaf (ST), Anil Garasiya from Jhalod (ST), Chaitar Vasava from Dediapada (ST), and Bipin Choudhary from Vyara (ST). Out of the 12 seats four are reserved for Scheduled Tribes (STs) and Scheduled Castes (SCs).
Meanwhile, Gopal Italia is under fire for allegedly using derogatory language against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. On this, Italia said, “If you keep digging past, then Smriti Irani once protested over prices carrying a gas cylinder… a promise was made to put Rs 15 lakh in accounts.”
