Arvind Kejriwal’s Gujarat visit is scheduled on October 16. Kejriwal has been already seen supporting the Patidars of Gujarat. Gujarat’s Patidar leader, Hardik Patel has been attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the surgical strikes, on Twitter.
Both Kejriwal and Hardik are targeting the assembly polls scheduled in Gujarat in 2017, and therefore have been attacking and questioning Modi. Delhi CM Kejriwal has been retweeting the tweets of Patel, which have been marked for the criticism of the Indian Prime Minister. However there are no confirmation on Kejriwal and Patel joining hands in the upcoming Gujarat elections.
Hardik Patel today tweeted, “BJP is responsible for the Hitler-esque politics in Gujarat which is the worst in Indian history. It is a sour truth yet is the truth.” Kejriwal retweeted it, along with the caption: “So true.”
Earlier also Patel had written a tweet criticising PM Modi for taking credit of surgical strikes across LoC when it should be the Indian Army who should take the credits. This came after the recent BJP-AAP problems regarding the strikes and its proof.
Patel alleged that BJP and Narendra Modi have been using the armed forces for political gain. Kejriwal had also retweeted another tweet by Patel which had to with the employment scene in Gujarat. He had said that even after seven ‘Vibrant summits’ in Gujarat, 35 lakh people are still unemployed. He wrote that 7 percent trade and 31 percent factories are closed.
