Ahmedabad: A day after Arvind Kejriwal’s bid to gatecrash Narendra Modi in Gandhinagar failed, the Aam Aadmi Party chief plans to take on the BJP’s PM candidate on his home turf by holding a rally in Ahmedabad today.

Mr Kejriwal has also planned a roadshow to the rally venue, for which the permission has not been given yet.

Mr Kejriwal has spent the last three days touring Gujarat to audit Mr Modi’s governance. Yesterday, he dropped in to meet Mr Modi, who is also the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate, with a list of 16 questions that challenge his claims of development of Gujarat on his watch.
Mr Kejriwal’s road-show in Gujarat has been steeped in controversy. The Election Commission says he violated the code of conduct by not seeking prior police permission for his procession through the state; his car and that of Mr Sisodia were attacked; and his brief detention at a police station resulted in street battles between workers of his party and the BJP in Delhi and Lucknow.

AAP is trying hard to emerge as the alternative to the Congress and the BJP in Gujarat. AAP says that if Mr Modi runs for Parliament from anywhere outside Gujarat, Mr Kejriwal is likely to stand against him.
