Ahmedabad: A fresh row erupted with AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal’s scheduled visit to Surat being cancelled after a trade body withdrew its invitation, which the party alleged was at the behest of state BJP government and came out with a sting operation to back its claim.
AAP state chief Kanu Kalsaria said that Surat Vehapari Mahamandal had invited the Delhi CM for felicitation and speech on July 10. “However, the trade body comprising small traders of Surat buckled under pressure and has withdrawn the invitation,” Kalsaria said.
He said AAP tried to convince the trade body but “they told us that it was hard to sustain the pressure exerted by
the state government”.
