New Delhi: As the Gujarat polls are approaching, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has assigned Rajya Sabha Raghav Chadha the position of co-incharge (Sah-Prabhari) for elections.

Chadha had previously played important role in enabling AAP to register its victory in Punjab and Delhi.

“I thank Arvind Kejriwal for entrusting me with this big responsibility. I will put in my blood, sweat, tears and toil to meet the expectations of my party. Gujarat wants change, Gujarat wants good education-healthcare. Gujarat wants Kejriwal,” said the AAP leader.

“Congratulations and best wishes to Rajya Sabha MP and youth leader Shri Raghav Chadha on his appointment as ‘AAP’ Gujarat co-in-charge!” AAP Gujarat tweeted in Gujarati.

AAP had made its debut in Gujarat in the 2017 Assembly polls, but could not open its account.

AAP’s hopes in Gujarat have been fuelled by its performance in the February 2021 Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) polls in which BJP won 93 seats, while Aam Aadmi Party bagged 27 seats and the Congress drew a blank.

Meanwhile, in the 2017 Assembly elections, Congress had given a scare to the ruling BJP by restricting its MLAs to 99 and winning 77 seats on its own. There are 182 assembly seats in Gujarat.

Notably, the party has been constantly making efforts to replace the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party in Gujarat. (ANI)
