Arvind Kejriwal led Aam Aadmi Party is all set to try its luck in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's home turf Gujarat.
Reliable sources have confirmed that Arvind Kejriwal-led party will be contesting Assembly Elections in Gujarat in 2017.
Making his first mark, Arvind Kejriwal would embark on a two-day visit to Gujarat on July 8. He is also scheduled to hold a rally on July 9.
In a bid to gain strong foothold in the state, Aam Aadmi Party has also appointed Delhi's Gulab Singh as the central in-charge of Gujarat affairs.
The move comes as an open challenge from Kejriwal to PM Modi. There have been several occasions where Kejriwal has compared his Delhi model of development to Modi's Gujarat model and called the latter a "myth".
Earlier, he had locked horns with PM in the 2014 Lok Sabha election in Varanasi constituency.
