The Aam Admi Party's dream of hitting the national stage took a beating yet again. All the 29 candidates fielded by the Arvind Kejriwal led party lost their deposits. Election data reveals that on one seat, its candidate won only 282 votes, and 299 in another. The AAP campaign in Gujarat was a non-starter. Its main leaders Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia were absent from the campaign. The debacle in Gujarat comes close on the heels of the drubbing the party got in Goa where 38 out of its 39 candidates had their deposits forfeited.
