Kejriwal said – only 4-5 seats of Congress will come
Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal reached Gujarat on Monday. In the election campaign here, he appealed to the people not to vote for the Congress. Kejriwal said, this time Congress will get only 4-5 seats in Gujarat. So people should not waste their votes by giving them to Congress. While interacting with the media, Arvind Kejriwal said, “As the Gujarat elections are approaching, the Congress is falling apart. No one is voting for Congress now.
Kejriwal said, there were two types of voters in Gujarat. Earlier he did not want to vote for BJP, so he used to vote for Congress. At the same time, there were other types of voters who were fed up with the hatred of the BJP but hated the Congress more. In such a situation, he used to vote for BJP. This time both types of voters are shifting towards Aam Aadmi Party. Those who are fed up with 27 years of misrule are voting for AAP.
He said that my estimate is that this time the vote share of Congress will go below 13 percent and Congress will get 4 or 5 seats. Arvind Kejriwal appealed to the people of Gujarat and said that this time the contest is directly between BJP and AAP.
