States' polls: Kejriwal to focus on Punjab, Ashutosh Gujarat, Sisodia Goa
AAP is locked in a triangular contest against the BJP-SAD alliance and Congress in Punjab while it has made major splashes in Gujarat and Goa in the past few months.
New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will focus on Punjab, while his deputy Manish Sisodia and Ministers Satyender Jain and Kapil Mishra will look after poll-bound Goa and Gujarat, states on the electoral radar of Aam Aadmi Party.
Sources said the decisions were arrived at during a meeting at Kejriwal's residence, a day after the Delhi CM returned from a 10-day-long Vipassana session from Dharamkot.
While senior leaders Ashutosh and Mishra will look after Gujarat, Jain and Sisodia will work towards making AAP click in Goa. AAP chief Kejriwal has visited the two states multiple times in the recent past.
"There is nothing official as to what their nature of work would be. These were some of the points which we discussed informally at a meeting and a decision will be taken soon," sources said.
AAP is locked in a triangular contest against the BJP-SAD alliance and Congress in Punjab while it has made major splashes in Gujarat and Goa in the past few months. All three states are going to polls next year.
The party had decimated the BJP and Congress in the last Delhi assembly election. It is hoping to ride the plank of development, especially in education and health, in meeting success in its other focus states.
