AAP plans contesting all 26 LS seats in Gujarat

Buoyed by its performance in Delhi assembly polls, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is planning to contest all the 26 Lok Sabha seats in Gujarat and take on BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on his home turf.

The two-day meeting of AAP's executive committee, which started in Ahmedabad on Saturday, is deliberating on planning and execution of the party's campaigning in the state for the 2014 elections, AAP's Gujarat convener Sukhdev Patel told PTI.

"We would like to contest on all the 26 seats and the deliberations are going on in the meeting about it," he said replying to a query.

After the good show in Delhi, AAP had hinted that they might field one of their young leader Kumar Vishwas from Amethi against Rahul Gandhi and now the party is planning to take on Narendra Modi, who might fight his first Lok Sabha elections.

When asked whether the party would fight against Modi, Patel said, "Yes, this is an important state as BJP's prime ministerial candidate comes from Gujarat. We have to take him (Modi) on here, as AAP has to fight all the Lok Sabha seats of the country when people are distressed with the present democratic system."

However, the state BJP has said that AAP does not present any competition to the party in Gujarat.

"Any political party is welcome to fight elections as they have right to fight. But in Gujarat, it is BJP all the way and there is Congress in some pockets. The system here is by-partisan and it will remain so. Many other political parties like BSP, LJP, NCP also contest elections from here," BJP spokesperson Harsad Patel said.

AAP, formed out of movement for Jan Lokpal Bill agitation, stunned BJP and Congress when it won 28 seats in the Delhi assembly elections in its debut.
