Kejriwal cancels tomorrow’s Guj visit in view of MCD polls

Ahmedabad: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has cancelled his visit to Gujarat scheduled tomorrow as he is currently busy preparing for the next month’s Delhi civic body polls.

“AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal will not be attending the Gandhinagar meeting. We have been told that he is busy with the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) polls where names of candidates are being finalised,” Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Saurashtra zone convener Kanu Kalsaria told reporters here today.

“But tomorrow’s programme will be held as per schedule in the presence of party’s Gujarat in-charge, Gopal Rai,” he said.

For tomorrow’s event, volunteers from across the 182 assembly segments in the state will gather at Chhavni Maidan in the state capital to discuss strategies for the upcoming Gujarat assembly elections and plan its door-to-door campaign.

The Delhi civic body will go to polls on April 23.
