Three days before Delhi goes to polls, senior BJP leader LK Advani projected a united face, saying the party was contesting the Assembly elections under the guidance of state unit president Vijay Goel and chief ministerial candidate Harsh Vardhan.

“We will form a government in Delhi under chief ministerial candidate Harsh Vardhan and state unit president Vijay Goel,” Advani told the media on Sunday.  While most senior leaders claim that Congress had only been lucky to have been voted to power thrice, Advani had a different stand.

“Our 14 years of exile will be over. It must have been our failure that we were not able to form a government. I don’t blame the voters for this,” he added. On the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), he said that given the political scenario in Delhi, there was no scope for the debutant party.

“There was a time when only one party got all the votes, but we gave the people an option and created a bi-polar political system. I don’t think that there is scope for a third party now,” he said.

Stating that Delhi voters were smart, he said that they would definitely vote for the BJP.

Terming the present rule of the Congress government at the Centre and the state as the worst period in the country’s history since Independence, Advani launched the BJP’s chargesheet against what he called the government’s “15 years of misrule”.

“Corruption is the biggest problem confronting society. It is a ‘tax’ on our least privileged citizens. We must have zero-tolerance against corruption,” said Advani, reiterating measures proposed by BJP chief ministerial candidate Harsh Vardhan of controlling graft on coming to power.
