Amidst the ongoing political battle in Gujarat, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal faced embarrassment today. Reportedly, Vikram Datani, the auto driver who invited Mr. Kejriwal for dinner, turned out to be a supporter of PM Narendra Modi. As per the sources, Vikram Datani, wearing a BJP cap, was spotted at PM Modi’s rally.
Moreover, when the media personnel asked him the reason for attending the rally, he said, “I’ve been a big fan of PM Narendra Modi since I was a child. However, at the union’s request, I had invited him for dinner at my place.” Surprisingly, when Delhi CM Kejriwal went to his place, auto driver Vikram stated that he’s a fan of Kejriwal.

Shockingly, it was Vikram Datani, who himself asked Delhi CM Kejriwal to have dinner at his place. In a video on social media, auto driver Vikram had said, “I am your fan, Kejriwal Ji. I remember, in Punjab, you went to an auto driver’s home. Will you come to my home for dinner?”
Subsequently, CM Kejriwal responded, “The auto walas of Delhi and Punjab love me. Should I come today evening by 8 PM?” Furthermore, in response to Mr. Kejriwal, auto driver Datani agreed and requested to pick him in his auto from the hotel. However, the whole thing took a dramatic turn when CM Kejriwal accused the BJP of trying to stop him, by deploying police force.
After that, the Aam Aadmi Party had been attacking the Bharatiya Janata Party, accusing it of trying to muzzle the voice of the AAP. But today’s news, that auto driver Vikram Datani is a fan of PM Modi, has brought embarrassment for Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and his party. Though, people attending the rallies of different parties is common during the elections.
With the Aam Aadmi Party contesting in the Gujarat assembly elections this time, the poll battle has turned out to be a three cornered contest between the BJP, Congress and the AAP. While the AAP claims to be the top contender of the BJP in Gujarat now, the saffron party denies the claim, stating that the AAP is only on the social media, nowhere on the ground.
