Delhi's Chief Minister (CM) and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)'s supremo Arvind Kejriwal has announced that his party will be contesting on all the seats in the upcoming Gujarat legislative assembly elections in 2022, Hindustan Times.
On a one-day visit to Gujarat today (14 June), Kejriwal took to Twitter and shot a post in Gujarati which read, "Havey badlashe Gujarat. Kaley hun Gujarat aavi rahyo chhu, Gujarat na bhai-behno ney malish (the state will transform now, am coming to Gujarat tomorrow and meet the people of the state)."
During the visit, Kejriwal will be inaugurating his party's new office for the State on Ahmedabad's Ashram Road. As per the party's spokesperson Tuli Banerjee, he will thereafter leave the State for Delhi again today itself.
Earlier today, senior Gujrati journalist Isudan Gadhvi had also joined AAP in Kejriwal's presence.

Then his party had fielded candidates across all the local bodies such as municipal corporations, municipalities, district,s and taluka panchayats
