Gopal Italia, the president of the Gujarat unit of Aam Admi Party accused the BJP to have compelled as many as six private party plot owners to cancel AAP’s upcoming event scheduled in Anand.
addressing a press conference in Ahmedabad, Gopal Italia said that it is an indication that BJP leaders are scared of Kejriwal’s rising popularity in Gujarat.
“We tried to organise a program for Kejriwal in Anand on the speculative dates of August 11, 12 and 13. When we first contacted Tulsi party plot they agreed to let us rent it but they called back two hours later to inform us that they will have to cancel the rent due to pressure from BJP leaders,” Italia claimed.
Other party plots he mentioned to have contacted for the purpose are the ‘Vivah’ party plot, the ‘Avsar’ party plot, the ‘Nakshatra’ party plot, the ‘Neelkanth’ party plot and the ‘Sardar Patel’ banquet hall. He said that all six plot owners agreed to allow Kejriwal’s event to be held on their premises but later backtracked in the face of threat and opposition from the BJP.
“Arvind Kejriwal’s rising popularity has made BJP anxious. For the first time in the history of Gujarat politics, the word guarantee has found its place because Kejriwal is a leader who delivers what he promises,” Gopal Italia told media persons.
