Kejriwal cancels one-day visit to Gujarat

New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party National Convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal cancelled his one-day visit to Gujarat owing to the prevailing situation arising out of demonetisation of high value currency notes, party sources said today.

Kejriwal was scheduled to visit Mahuva in Gujarat tomorrow where he was to attend a function.

On behalf of the Delhi Chief Minister, his Cabinet colleague Satyendar Jain will attend this function in Gujarat which will go to Assembly elections next year.

Earlier in the day, Kejriwal and his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee addressed a rally of farmers, traders and labourers at Azadpur Mandi here against the scrapping of high value currency notes.

The AAP chief asked the Centre to roll it back in three days while the TMC supremo said such a crisis was not seen even during Emergency.
