Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday launched a crowdsourcing campaign to select the party’s Chief Ministerial candidate for the Gujarat elections. Kejriwal announced a number to register the opinion — 6357000360. On this number, people can send voice messages, WhatsApp and SMSes till November 3. The results would be announced on November 4.
He has also shared an email id on which views can be sent. Elections to the 182-member Gujarat Legislative Assembly are scheduled to take place by the end of the year. The polling dates, however, have yet to be revealed.
Arvind Kejirwal said that “the atmosphere is such in Gujarat that the AAP govt is going to come (to power). We want to ask the people of Gujarat who should be the next chief minister, and for that, we are issuing a contact number and email-id where people can send suggestions”. The helpline will remain open till november 3 and the result would be announced on November 4.
Arvind Kejriwal said that the BJP ruled for 27 years, but they can’t talk about what work they have done. “Their whole campaign is about abusing AAP, Kejriwal. They don’t have any agenda as to what they will do in the next five years. People are troubled due to unemployment and inflation. People want change and relief”.
