AAP’s national president and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal on Monday urged the people of Gujarat to not waste their vote on Congress, as it is not present in the picture and AAP is directly in the contest with the BJP in the Gujarat assembly election of 2022. Arvind Kejriwal also claimed that congress is going to get a margin of 5-6 seats in the 182-member Gujarat assembly.
AAP fighting with Arvind Kejriwal’s Delhi model
The AAP is running in the Gujarat assembly election of 2022 with the face of the CM, Sudan Gadhvi, and promising to rule the state as it is ruling in Delhi and Punjab. The AAM AADMI PARTY is facing the tag of vote katua party from the congress, whereas Arvind Kejriwal is saying that if congress’s hardcore votes base shifts towards the AAM AADMI PARTY, then it can win more seats and have full confidence in forming government in Gujarat.
Arvind Kejriwal also said that in the year 2021, the Aam Aadmi party secured many seats in the municipal cooperation elections, and congress was not on the scene anywhere. He said that he requests the people of Gujarat to just vote for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) of Arvind Kejriwal once and see the change in governance. He also appealed to the people so that they could see the Delhi model of education and health and good and honest governance in Punjab. The AAP is this time looking confident and according to the ground sources, AAP can take a jibe at the BJP in the Gujarat assembly elections 2022.
BJP in power for 27 years, Narendra Modi and Amit Shah leading from the front

The Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) has been ruling Gujarat for the last 27 years, and the current PM, Shri Narendra Modi, was its CM until 2014 before being elected as PM. Home Minister Amit shah is the CHANAKYA of current politics, and all other parties know his strength of catering to votes for the BJP which is facing anti-incumbency in Gujarat.
On Saturday, Amit Shah reached the BJP state office, KAMALAM, and he met with the state president and other party leaders to discuss the rebel candidates who are doing real damage to the BJP. PM Narendra Modi is doing marathon rallies to gather votes for the BJP, and probably the AAP is the reason because, though it is called VOTE CUTTER by the Congress, BJP leaders can sense that the AAP is going to do much more damage to the BJP than to the Congress.
The BJP has still not announced its candidate for the Gujarat assembly elections in 2022, as it is playing the same gamble on the face of PM Narendra Modi. There is a bit of a controversy going around that UP CM Yogi Adityanath may not be able to rally for BJP as there can be conflict of interest as Gujarat elections are totally based around PM Narendra Modi and Home minister Amit Shah, as they belong to the state and they will be getting the credit if the party wins and if the tables are turned in this election, then over leaders can be blamed.

Congress still trying to keep a low profile by sidelining Rahul Gandhi
The Congress party is making its presence felt in the rural areas of Gujarat as it secured 77 seats in the 2017 Gujarat assembly elections, and it gave a tough fight to the BJP although it was not able to form a government. Congress party is rallying majorly in rural parts of the state and Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot has the reins of the party in Gujarat.
The Congress party has also been accused of not using Rahul Gandhi in the Gujarat assembly elections of 2022, but now, according to sources within the Congress party, Rahul Gandhi will be addressing the people of Gujarat soon. The BJP leader Anurag Thakur said that the Congress party is afraid that Rahul Gandhi can say something that can affect the votes, and that’s why Rahul Gandhi was not invited to hold rallies in Himachal Pradesh.
Tough game ahead of BJP, AAP, and the congress
The voters of Gujarat are always said to be hardcore voters of the BJP, but this time the BJP is facing anti-incumbency because of the Morbi Bridge mishap and also due to rising inflation, unemployment, and farm laws. The people of Gujarat have been voting for the BJP for the last 27 years, but, this time it’s not about running the government from Delhi people want a stable government and permanent CM, as the BJP has tried three CMs in a period of 8 years.
The AAP is looking very confident after having a landslide victory in Punjab, and also in panchayat and municipal elections in Gujarat. Arvind Kejriwal is directly accusing the BJP of misusing state machinery and he is also hoping to get the support of the common people who can vote in favor of the AAP because of its Delhi model and freebies. The Congress party is working well on the ground and has a significant presence in the rural areas of Gujarat and it seems that the congress party can also be surprised if all things work in its favor these elections can also help the congress to revive the party in Gujarat and in All over India.
