Last day of Gujarat tour- Arvind Kejriwal to address public rally in Bapunagar

By on March 8, 2014

Today, Arvind Kejriwal will address a public rally at Vijay Chowk area in Bapunagar. Though Gujarat Police has still not given the permission, AAP has planned a roadshow to the rally venue ahead of the Lok Sabha Elections 2014 to take on BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.

Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal today visited Mahatma Gandhi’s Sabarmati Ashram. He said everyone should follow the teachings of truth and non-violence of Mahatma Gandhi.

During his unplanned Gujarat tour, Arvind Kejriwal visited many areas to check the development of Gujarat. He said that the development in Gujarat is “over-hyped”. Kejriwal said that farmers’ lands are acquired by Gujarat government for corporate groups like Adanis and Ambanis, while farmers have been given less compensation.”The infrastructure, health system, colleges, and schools are in bad condition in Gujarat.” Kejriwal said.

In the four day tour, Arvind Kejriwal visited mostly in rural and less developed areas of the Gujarat state. He said that there are no roads in villages. Kejriwal also visited Kutch and Saurashtra regions to see the plight of the people. He said: “Despite increasing the Narmada dam height in 2005 to provide water to farmers of Kutch region, Kutch farmers are not receiving their share of water.”

Yesterday, Arvind Kejriwal’s convoy was stopped by Gujarat Police outside Gandhinagar as Arvind Kejriwal want to meet Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi without appointment. Narendra Modi rejected the Arvind Kejriwal’s request for an appointment.

Arvind Kejriwal told reporters at the Sanganer Airport in Jaipur on Friday afternoon: “I went to meet Modiji. We were stopped five kilometers from his residence. I am not a terrorist. We seek answers to 16 questions we had over Modiji governance in Gujarat. Being an ex-CM I deserve a courtesy call from Modi.”

As Modi likely to fight elections from Varanasi constituency in Uttar Pradesh, Aam Aadmi party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal may contest against him in the Lok Sabha Elections 2014.
