None of the AAP candidates win in the assembly election
GN Bureau | December 18, 2017
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was out on duck in Gujarat where none of its 20 candidates failed to win in the assembly elections.
The poor showing of the party at the hustings comes on the heels of the reversals it faced in Punjab and Goa.
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.
“There were massive crowds at rallies of Patidar leader Hardik Patel. BJP workers were booed at many rallies. Prime minister Narendra Modi’s rallies were thinly attended. Still, if the BJP wins, it has managed to manipulate the EVMs,” reported the Hindu citing AAP spokesperson Sanjay Singh.
