    Aam Aadmi Party may field its firebrand leader Anjali Damania against stalwart Nitin Gadkari

    AAP is quite keen to repeat party chief Arvind Kejriwal’s sterling victory against Delhi’s former Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit by pitting Damania against Gadkari in the proposed high profile contest.  AAP is mulling contesting all 48 Lok Sabha seats and 288 Assembly seats in Maharashtra in the ensuing elections slated for 2014.

    anjali-gadkari-1_350_092712051252Nagpur News: The Second Capital City of Nagpur is likely to witness “Mother of all elections” if the decision of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is a pointer to it. The AAP has decided to field its firebrand leader and an anti corruption crusader turned party leader Anjali Damania against the giant BJP leader Nitin Gadkari for Nagpur Lok Sabha constituency. AAP’s executive committee of Maharashtra has already asked Damania to be ready for her nomination in Nagpur and fight the former BJP National President on his own turf.

    AAP leader Mayank Gandhi speaking to media said, “The state executive last week discussed the matter and asked Damania to be prepared for he candidature from Nagpur.”

    Interestingly, for both Gadkari and Damania, it will be their debut in the electoral politics as none of them so far had contested either the Assembly or Lok Sabha elections.

    Gadkari has been elected to the Maharashtra Legislative Council from the Graduates Constituency since 1989. Gadkari has already indicated that he is quite keen to contest from the Nagpur Lok Sabha seat which is currently represented by Congress party’s Vilas Muttemwar. Gadkari has already initiated a slew of pro-common and farmers projects in Nagpur constituency and also launched voters contact programme.

    On the other hand, Damania was one of the two whistleblowers who dug out the multi crore irrigation scam after her farmland, that was with her for more than a decade, was taken over for an irrigation project in the Raigad district.

    Further, Damania had accused Gadkari for going soft on NCP because of his alleged business relationship with NCP chief and Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar. However, Gadkari had denied any link between him and Pawar.
