Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Shanta Kumar on Friday said Aam Aadmi Party was a movement but not a party and said that 'the movements don't exist for too long'.
Kumar, who was on his visit to Jhanjheri village in SAS Nagar to collect a farming tools from village famers to be used in making of The Statue Of Unity to be constructed near Sardar Sarovar Dam in Gujarat, said the movement was started by social activist Anna Hazare for a better India, but was later hijacked by Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and formed AAP.
He also said the country had now seen that AAP could not run the government in Delhi because they did not have any administrative experience which, he said, 'comes by time and cannot be hijacked from anywhere'.
He paid respect to Sardar Vallabhai Patel and declared him the architect of the unified India. He also said that India's first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru was given the responsibility of only one state Jammu and Kashmir that still was a burning issue. “Whereas, Sardar Patel united as many as 585 different 'riasats' to form the unified India,” Kumar added.
He said this time, the BJP would seek vote for a new progressive India under the leadership of BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
“People of the country have been suffering from the mis-governance of UPA from last ten years but this time, Congress will be ousted out of the picture,” he said.
