Detained, then released: Arvind Kejriwal's Gujarat visit causes tremors in Modi-land

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremeo Arvind Kejriwal who has landed in Gujarat, for his four day trip to the state, was detained by the police.

The unprecedented development brought Kejriwal in focus. A while after his arrest at the Radhanpur police station in Patan district, Kejriwal was released.

Apparently, he was detained to see if there was any violation of the model code of conduct. There were neither any stickers or posters on his car. He was on way to Bhuj.

The AAP supporters say that it was harassment and he was targeted because he came to Gujarat to see the 'reality of the state'. There was no reason to hold him up and thus the police later let him go. They allege that their leader was caught after instructions from the top.

The mainstream TV media that was not giving coverage to AAP leader's visit to Gujarat till recently, suddenly seemed to have woken up to Kejriwal's presence in Gujarat. Kejriwal is raising the issue of lack of development in Gujarat.

He claims that talk of progress is just an eye wash. He says that he will expose the lack of adequate development in the State. Kejriwal is meeting people from all sections of the society and apprising them about AAP's policies, during his road show.

Clearly, AAP leader's entry in Gujarat, is heating up the political atmosphere. The state has been a virtual BJP citadel. Congress has failed to find favour with electorate. Now AAP is certainly turning the contest more interesting.
