Aam Aadmi Party appoints Raghav Chadha as co-incharge for Gujarat polls | Ahmedabad News – Times of India


AHMEDABAD: Ahead of the upcoming Gujarat polls, Aam Aadmi Party has launched a youth face in the state and appointed Rajya Sabha MP Raghav Chadha the co-incharge (Sah-Prabhari) for elections.
Chadha had previously played important role in enabling AAP to register its victory in Punjab and Delhi.
“I thank @ArvindKejriwal ji for entrusting me with this big responsibility. I will put in my blood, sweat, tears and toil to meet the expectations of my party. Gujarat wants change, Gujarat wants good education-healthcare. Gujarat wants Kejriwal,” the Rajya Sabha MP tweeted after the party announced his appointment.

“Congratulations and best wishes to Rajya Sabha MP and youth leader Shri @raghav_chadhaon his appointment as ‘AAP’ Gujarat co-in-charge!” AAP Gujarat tweeted in Gujarati.

AAP had made its debut in Gujarat in the 2017 Assembly polls, but could not open its account.
AAP’s hopes in Gujarat have been fuelled by its performance in the February 2021 Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) polls in which BJP won 93 seats, while Aam Aadmi Party bagged 27 seats and the Congress drew a blank.
Meanwhile, in the 2017 Assembly elections, Congress had given a scare to the ruling BJP by restricting its MLAs to 99 and winning 77 seats on its own. There are 182 assembly seats in Gujarat.
Notably, the party has been constantly making efforts to replace the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party in Gujarat.
