Arvind Kejriwal queries whether the BJP will name Amit Shah as its candidate for governor of Gujarat
Recently, the Aam Aadmi Party unveiled its initial list of 10 candidates for the Gujarat elections.
Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, stated on Thursday that the BJP is "horrified" by the AAP's quick expansion in Gujarat and questioned whether it intended to nominate Union Home Minister Amit Shah as its chief ministerial candidate in the state's upcoming Assembly elections.
The national convenor of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) pondered in a cryptic tweet whether the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was dissatisfied with Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendrabhai Patel's performance.
Is it accurate to say that the BJP would name Amit Shah Ji as its candidate for chief minister in the Gujarat Assembly elections? Kejriwal posed the query in a Hindi tweet. He further questioned, "Is the BJP upset with Bhupendrabhai Patel's work?"
Kejriwal had tweeted in March that he was unsure whether Praful K. Patel, the administrator of Lakshadweep, will become Delhi's next lieutenant governor. The Delhi LG at the time was Anil Baijal. Before the state's upcoming Assembly elections, Manish Sisodia, the deputy chief minister of Delhi, said on April 7 that the BJP was considering replacing Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur with Union minister Anurag Thakur.
According to Sisodia, who cited "reliable sources" for his assertion, the BJP intended to implement "the significant shift" because it was concerned about losing the impending election due to the AAP's rising support in the hill state. Before the Goa Assembly elections in October of last year, Sisodia had asserted that the saffron party was going to oust Chief Minister Pramod Sawant since the public disapproved of the way his administration was handling its duties.
The AAP leader's assertion had been debunked by the BJP. Until the end of the Assembly's session, Sawant remained the coastal state's chief minister.
After the BJP won the Assembly elections, he was sworn in as chief minister of Goa for the second term in a row.
