Ajay Kothiyal will lock horns with the Chief Minister on behalf of the Aam Aadmi Party. Aam Aadmi Party spokesperson Naveen said that it is mandatory for the chief minister Tirath Singh Rawat’s to contest by September and said that if the chief minister has the guts, he should contest the by-election seat from Gangotri assembly. . If CM Tirath Singh Rawat contests from Gangotri seat which fell vacant after the death of BJP MLA Gopal Rawat it will be a litmus test for both and could make an impact on the future prospects of the both parties in the next assembly elections scheduled in 2022.
