Kejriwal, who began his roadshow at 1400 hours from the party’s local office located at Shreyas crossroads, travelled in an open-top jeep with AAP supporters and policemen alongside.
Though his roadshow officially had about seven vehicles, several party supporters accompanied Kejriwal on two-wheelers. Kejriwal was seen constantly waving to the curious onlookers who had lined up by the road-side.
“We have come all the way from Rajkot. I am among the 800 party members who have come for the AAP’s public meeting to be held at Bapunagar later in the evening,” said Chandra Arora, one of the few female party workers who were part of the roadshow.
“We are enthused to see our leader Kejriwal come to Gujarat. He is honest to the core,” said Arora, a PhD scholar who joined the party a couple of months ago.

As Kejriwal passed through Paldi, Kalupur and Gitamandir areas, several people came forward to garland him while others, including autorickshaw drivers, waved back. “This man has created ripples in all the places that he goes to,” said Ashok Patel, who was one of the autorickshaw driver who waved to Kejriwal as he passed by.
The AAP supporters, armed with brooms (the party’s election symbol), chanted “Shelia Dixit haari hai, Ab Modi ki baari hai” as the rally passed through some of the Hindu and Muslim localities of the city.
The roadshow is scheduled to culminate at Bapunagar where Kejriwal will address a public rally later in the evening.
