AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal on Friday announced that Isudan Gadhvi will be the party’s chief ministerial face.

The AAP chief has been aggressively campaigning in the state, and has been anchoring his party’s campaign around a slew of sops, including free electricity, better education, healthcare facilities, among others.
