Had Congress not been in picture, we would’ve formed govt in Gujarat: AAP leader


Had Congress not been in the picture in Gujarat, the AAP would have been in a position to form the government with a full majority, just like it did in Punjab, AAP leader Isudan Gadhvi said here on Friday.
Isudan Gadhvi, the AAP’s CM face for Gujarat, attacked the Congress and referred to it as the ruling BJP’s “B team” in an interview with the press. Gadhvi expressed optimism that AAP will form the government in the state with a full majority.
Responding to a question regarding AAP supremo and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal’s video in which he appealed to electors not to vote for Congress, Gadhvi said Congress was dividing votes and that its MLAs would be available for sale.
“Arvind Ji in Goa told electors not to vote for Congress. He said so because if they voted for the Congress, its MLAs would go to the BJP. This time we hear that the BJP has helped half of its leaders get Congress tickets so that after winning, they will join the BJP,” the AAP leader said.
“As many as 65 big Congress leaders including its MLAs joined BJP in last eight years, so whose B team is Congress” asked Gadhvi.
“If BJP gets 70 seats and Congress 10-15 and if all Congress MLAs will join BJP then they may be in a position to form the government to ‘loot’ farmers again,” he alleged.
On AAP leader and Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain’s CCTV visuals from Tihar jail, Gadhvi said, “It is BJP’s plan, conspiracy which will go on till December 8 to insult (Delhi CM) Arvind Kejriwal & others… Someone is sick, has a medical certificate for it. Why is there a CCTV in jail?”
