The situation for the AAP was so bad in Gujarat that the party did not even find mention in the data put out by the election commission of India.
AAP chief and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal was reportedly initially not keen to fight the Gujarat elections. However, the party released a list of 11 candidates following it up a month later with another list of nine candidates.
After the two-phased Gujarat elections got over, AAP on December 15 questioned the electronic voting machines.
