Aam Aadmi Party Declares Isudan Gadhvi As Its CM Candidate For Gujarat

Isudan Gadhvi

The Aam Aadmi Party on Friday declared Isudan Gadhvi as its Chief Ministerial candidate for upcoming Gujarat Assembly Election. Delhi CM and AAP Supremo Arvind Kejriwal made the announcement in the Presence of Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann and other party functionaries from Gujarat.

The AAP had asked people of Gujarat to report its preferred choice for CM candidate and 73% people voted for Isudan Gadhvi, Kejriwal said.

Isudan Gadhvi, before joining politics, was a well-known journalist and anchor of his popular news show Mahamanthan at VTV Gujarati.

40-year-old Gadhvi comes from Pipaliya village near Jamkhambhaliya town in Devbhoomi Dwarka district of Gujarat. In June 2021, Gadhvi joined the AAP Party facilitated by Arvind Kejriwal, who arrived in Ahmedabad to inaugurate AAP’s state headquarters.

Recently in June 2022, ahead of the upcoming assembly elections in Gujarat, the AAP dissolved its Gujarat unit and reinvigorated it with a new organizational structure, marked by the appointment of Gadhvi, a popular face of the party in Gujarat, as the National Joint General Secretary.

Prior to the Assembly elections in Punjab, the AAP had conducted a survey in which Bhagwant Mann had been the clear popular choice. Mann went on to become the chief minister of the state.

Earlier on Thursday, the Election Commission announced the dates for the Assembly elections in Gujarat.

The elections will be held in two phases on December 1 and 5. The counting of votes will take place on December 8, which coincides with that of Himachal Pradesh’s result date.
