“AAP will contest elections on all seats in the local
bodies polls in the state for the first time. With this, the party will enter
the electoral politics of Gujarat as a strong alternative to the BJP. AAP will
work to remove the BJP from power,” PTI quoted Atishi as saying.

She stated that AAP would be contesting the Vidhan Sabha polls in Gujarat
as well as the people of the state wanted an electoral alternative in the state,
while reportedly accusing the BJP of playing the politics of intimidation and allurement.

“If there is a leader in the country who is not scared
of the BJP, it is Arvind Kejriwal. And if there is one party that the BJP
cannot scare or allure, then it is AAP… We, the soldiers of Arvind Kejriwal,
will continue our fight for truth,” Atishi also said.

The party, additionally, made an email address where the people can register
their complaints against the candidates, if there are any.
