Kejriwal’s sensational predictions on Gujarat’s Chief Ministership

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal - Sakshi Post

New Delhi: Quick on the heels of Gujarat Chief Minister Anandiben Patel’s resignation, the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal issued a bold claim stating that Anandiben Patel quit because of AAP’s growing popularity in Gujarat and this move by the BJP was a victory for the Aam Aadmi Party there.

Gujarat is fed up of Anandiben Patel’s corrupt mal-administration, he said, and added there is a huge support for AAP in Gujarat now.

A prophesy or Kejri’s growing political acumen?

Kick-starting his campaigning in the Western State in the month of July, Kejriwal had made a political prediction saying BJP would replace Anandiben Patel with Amit Shah as the Chief Minister of Gujarat.

Though Anandiben Patel had stated her age to be the reason for her decision to step down, the political climate in Gujarat has been on the boil for some time now, and BJP would have wanted a new face to lead the party up to the oncoming Gujarat Assembly elections in 2017.

It certainly looks like the first part of Kejriwal’s prediction has come true. But was this soothsaying or is it his growing political acumen?

With celebrities like Navjot Singh Sidhu, who once opposed him, now joining his party ranks, and the BJP making no efforts to disguise their ‘going after the AAP leaders’ strategy’ in Delhi, does the BJP now think that Kejriwal’s AAP can be a formidable foe in Gujarat?

It would certainly be a debacle, if not an embarrassment if the BJP which is chasing after the AAP in New Delhi, loses ground to them in the Prime Minister’s home state of Gujarat.

We will have to wait and see if the BJP leadership will pick one amongst the current favourites to step into the CM’s shoes or will Amit Shah come home take up the cudgels of leadership to try and fend off an increasingly ominous threat in the AAP.
