Aam Aadmi Party's candidate from Surat (East) withdrew his nomination for the upcoming Gujarat assembly election amid abduction claims by top AAP leaders.

In a video shared by AAP national spokesperson Raghav Chadhav, Surat (East) candidate Kanchan Jariwala, surrounded by unidentified persons and some police personnel, can be seen entering RO office to withdraw his nomination.

At a press briefing earlier today, Chadha had accused BJP of abducting Jariwala and taking him to an undisclosed location.

"Our candidate Kanchan Jariwala from Surat East seat has been kidnapped by BJP," Chadha said.

"First BJP unsuccessfully tried to get his nomination papers rejected, then coerced him to withdraw his candidature and now kidnapped him. He is missing since last afternoon."

While Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia and other top AAP leaders doubled down on the abduction claim, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal accused BJP of pressurising Jariwala to take back his nomination without blaming the saffron party for alleged abduction.

Responding to the allegations, a BJP official said that AAP is desperately trying to capture limelight by making such baseless allegations.
