Lok Sabha elections 2024: The Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) campaigning for Lok Sabha polls 2024 will get a boost with Sunita Kejriwal likely to hold roadshows in Delhi beginning this weekend, in the absence of her husband Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, party sources said today (April 25).

Sunita is slowly emerging out of the shadows to assume a bigger role to give a fillip to AAP's campaigning which has been affected by Kejriwal's arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a money laundering case in March. The Delhi chief minister's judicial custody has been extended till May 7.

AAP's roadshows in national capital

The Congress party has fielded former Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU) president Kanhaiya Kumar from North East Delhi seat. Kanhaiya will fight the poll battle against BJP candidate Manoj Tiwari who is the sitting MP from the seat.

Sunita will also campaign for AAP candidates in Gujarat and Punjab, sources added. Her name is part of the list of star campaigners of the party for Gujarat.
