The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is looking to spread its wings over Gujarat, as well placed party sources have confirmed to ANI that the Arvind Kejriwal-led party has decided to contest the upcoming assembly elections in the BJP-ruled state to be held in December 2017.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is the AAP’s national convener, would embark on a two-day visit to Gujarat on July 8-9, where he would formally launched his party’s campaign for the 182-seat assembly polls after paying his obeisance at the Somnath temple in Saurashtra, said sources.

During the two-day visit, Kejriwal is slated to meet his party cadres and leaders.

He will be accompanied by AAP state convener Kanubhai Kansariya, a former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA and a confidante of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Gujarat. Meanwhile, the AAP, which has already started expanding its base in the state, has appointed Delhi MLA Gulab Singh as central in-charge of the Gujarat Affairs in view of the assembly polls.
