“The BJP claims to be the world’s largest political party, yet it was afraid by a little party and a small election,” Kejriwal added, criticising the BJP for “postponing” municipal elections. I challenge the BJP to hold MCD elections on time.
New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal, the Delhi Chief Minister, stated on Wednesday that he is pushing the BJP to hold MCD elections on time, adding that the BJP is afraid of losing the elections. Attacking the BJP for “postponing” municipal elections, Kejriwal stated that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will leave politics if the saffron party conducts and wins these elections on schedule. His comments came after the Union Cabinet approved a bill on Tuesday to merge Delhi’s three civic bodies – North, East, and South.
“If the BJP wins the MCD elections (on time), we (the AAP) will exit politics,” Kejriwal told reporters outside the Delhi Assembly. “The BJP claims to be the world’s largest political party, but it was intimidated by a minor party and a small election,” he continued. I challenge the BJP to hold MCD elections on time.
” Later, on Twitter, Kejriwal claimed that postponing the polls is a “insult to martyrs.” “The BJP’s decision to postpone the polls for the Delhi Municipal Corporation is an insult to the martyrs who gave their lives to establish democracy in the country by driving the British out. They’ve postponed the elections for the Delhi Municipal Corporation today because they’re afraid of losing, and they’ll postpone the elections for the states and the country tomorrow,” Kejriwal tweeted.
“If the BJP postpones elections out of fear of losing minor MCD votes,” the Delhi CM and AAP chief added, “then it would suppress people’s voices.” “We all know the BJP is going to be wiped out in the MCD elections,” Kejriwal declared.
