After failing to meet Narendra Modi at his home-turf yesterday, Arvind Kejriwal is set to challenge the BJP PM candidate by holding a rally today.
Earlier too, he was detained by Gujarat police for holding rallies without permission. Sources say that no permission has been granted to Kejriwal for holding a rally in Gujarat.
In his bid to challenge Modi,Kejriwal dropped with a set of 16 questions for Modi yesterday. While he was not able to meet Modi, he complained, "Modi has no time to meet me".
While at Modi's bastion, it was made clear that if Kejriwal has to meet Modi, he should have taken permissions and appointments, neither of which were done.
Hel has spent the last three days touring Gujarat to audit Modi's governance. Yesterday, he dropped in to meet Mr Modi, who is also the BJP's prime ministerial candidate, with a list of 16 questions that challenge his claims of development of Gujarat on his watch.
Kejriwal's road-show in Gujarat has been steeped in controversy.
The Election Commission says he violated the code of conduct by not seeking prior police permission for his procession through the state; his car and that of Mr Sisodia were attacked; and his brief detention at a police station resulted in street battles between workers of his party and the BJP in Delhi and Lucknow.
AAP is trying hard to emerge as the alternative to the Congress and the BJP in Gujarat. While Congress has been supportive of AAP's antics, BJP-AAP clash has been on for some-time outside BJP's main head-quarters.
Meanwhile, people on Twitter are fighting over AAP-BJP tussle:
