West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamul Congress leader will visit Andhra Pradesh today to campaign for Chandrababu Naidu’s Telugu Desam Party.
The Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal will also attend the rally on Sunday. Arvind Kejriwal, who heads the Aam Aadmi Party, has already campaigned for the TDP leader on March 28.
“Only a visionary and dynamic leader like him can build a modern Andhra Pradesh. In last five years he had laid foundation of a modern and vibrant Andhra Pradesh and this work needs to be taken forward,” Mr Kejriwal said at a rally in Vijaywada.
The Andhra Pradesh chief minister had taken part in the January 19 mega opposition rally organised by Ms Banerjee at the Brigade parade grounds. A month later, he again visited the Trinamool leader to express solidarity with Ms Banerjee when she was on a dharna or sit-in protest against CBI’s attempt to question the then city police commissioner Rajeev Kumar.
Apart from Mamata Banerjee and Arvind Kejriwal, several other opposition leaders are expected to campaign for the TDP leader. RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, JDS supremo H D Deve Gowda and DMK chief M K Stalin will also canvass for the TDP the next week.
The election will be held in Andhra on April 11 and counting of votes will take place on May 23
