The local administration has rubbished the links with the AAP leader’s public gathering. Aam Aadmi Party supporters believe the decision on internet ban is directly linked to their leader’s scheduled rally in Surat.

The charges are rubbish. Kejriwal is addressing his rally in Surat, you tell me why we have imposed similar ban in Bhavnagar and Ahmedabad and other cities in Gujarat. Kejriwal’s rally is planned for 6 pm, while internet ban is effective only between 10 am and 2 pm.“This is ridiculous, MS Patel, Surat DM, told jantakareporter.com. Our decision was to prevent the students from using WhatsApp to leak the exam papers.

As expected, His tweet, has been widely shared by AAP supporters, who suspected a sabotage behind the decision. Local journalist Janak Dave was the first to tweet about the local administration’s decision.

Manish Sisodia, Delhi’s deputy chief minister, posted a tweet announcing his party’s deicison to challenge the long rule of the BJP in the state.

He wrote, Up until now, they (BJP) use to come first by running alone in the race. This will be first time Gujarat will witness a real exam.

The channel quoted a top party leader, We have approached Hardik and he has assured all support to AAP, Just like any other political party we are in touch with local leaders who want to work for the people.

Last year, Anandiben Patel, the then chief minister, had ordered brutal crackdown on people taking part in peaceful protests by Patodar community led by Hardik Patel.

Kejriwal would spend four days in the state, beginning Friday, As per the schedule of Kejriwal’s visit released by AAP’s Gujarat unit earlier this week.

State unit BJP spokesperson Bharat Pandya said in a statement, That is why he is doing such stunts. But people of Gujarat will not be carried away with such tactics and he will never be accepted here. Kejriwal and his AAP is known for spreading lies and enacting drama. His only intention is to gain publicity.

Vaghani said, he will never succeed in his intentions. Kejriwal wants to rake up issues of the past for his political gains and wants to create tension in Gujarat, By visiting Patel families. This is purely casteist politics.
