Read about the humorous turn of events as Kejriwal’s BJP-tied candidate requests to withdraw from the race by contacting the election officer.
In Gujarat, the political unrest grew worse before the assembly elections. On November 15, 2022, the Aam Aadmi Party charged the Bharatiya Janata Party with kidnapping Kanchan Jariwala, one of their candidates. Jariwala went to the election officer’s office on November 16, 2022, to withdraw his nomination while under police protection. Jariwala received a ticket from the Aam Aadmi Party for the Surat East assembly district. However, Kanchan Jariwala has since withdrew from consideration.
Aam Aadmi Party alleged that Kanchan Jariwala had vanished without warning. In the meantime, Kanchan Jariwala’s disappearance has been linked to the BJP, according to Isudan Gadhvi, the Aam Aadmi Party’s nominee for governor of Gujarat. Isudan Gadhvi claimed that Kanchan Jariwala’s entire family was missing. On November 15, Isudan Gadhvi tweeted, “THE BJP is so afraid of the AAP that it has resorted to hooliganism! For a few days, the BJP followed our Kanchan Jariwala, who was running from Surat East, and now he’s gone! Also missing is his family! It’s thought that BJP thugs have abducted him.
On November 16, 2022, Arvind Kejriwal also tweeted about this. He stated, “Kanchan Jariwala, our Surat (East) candidate, and his family have been missing since yesterday.” BJP initially attempted to have his nomination denied. However, his nomination was approved. Later, he came under pressure to revoke his nomination. Has he been taken away? After Arvind Kejriwal tweeted this, Kanchan Jariwala arrived at the election officer’s office to withdraw his nomination in less than an hour.
Manish Sisodia, the leader of the AAP and deputy chief minister of Delhi, spoke with the Election Commission over Jariwala’s withdrawal of his nomination. He declared, “There is a state of emergency, yet I was supposed to go to the Election Commission at 2 pm. I must therefore address this issue as quickly as possible.
Kanchan Jariwala, an AAP candidate from Surat East, has been abducted by BJP goons, according to AAP leader Raghav Chadha, who made the announcement during a news conference on Wednesday morning. Since yesterday morning, the BJP has been holding the AAP candidate in custody. The BJP is abducting the AAP candidate because it is so anxious. This is the assassination of democracy. Twitter users also noted how the AAP leaders’ regular tactic is to instill fear in the BJP if elections are approaching or they are caught conducting their own work improperly. Gujarat will have elections this year in December, with results being announced on December 8, 2022.
