Right ahead of the Gujarat Assembly elections, when a fierce rivalry has been going on between the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and the Aam Aadmi Party, politics has heated up after Isudan Gadhvi’s FSL report on alcohol has come positive.
Today, 13 days later, AAP leader Isudan Gadhvi’s blood test report came out and confirming his drinking under a complaint lodged following the December 20 attack on the state’s BJP headquarters in Kamalam.
Claiming the report to be false, Isudan Gadhvi said, “I swear to God that I have never touched alcohol in my life. This report is totally false. I will file a defamation suit against him. “
On the other hand, the Aam Aadmi Party has stood tall beside Gadhvi as a shield. Describing the incident as a disgusting move by the BJP government, another senior AAP leader Mahesh Savani asked why the report took so long. While the state government is moving ahead with filing a case against Isudan based on the report.
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) activists, led by Gadhvi and Gopal Italia stormed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state headquarters in Kamalam, demanding registration of a case against Asit Vora and his resignation in the senior clerk’s examination paper leak case, which was strongly opposed by BJP workers. Sapna Rajput, a BJP woman activist, had lodged a complaint against Isudan alleging that Gadhvi was drunk, vandalized and molested her, on the basis of which police arrested her and earlier examined her at Ahmedabad Civil Hospital, where Gadhvi’s report was negative.
However, on the very next day, that is, today, Gadhvi’s FSL report came positive.
Calling the whole incident as a means of defamation, Isudan tossed the matter and stated that he had only smoked once in his life, never after being beaten at home.
The Gujarat government is accountable for the incident to some extent since such incidents get registered even when the state has total ban on alcohol.
