Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, in an open letter to the people of the city, on Monday sought support against the disqualification of 20 AAP MLAs on charges of holding “office of profit”.

The BJP attacked the AAP over the letter and dared it to contest all the 70 seats in Delhi.

Tweeting a letter, Sisodiaaccused the BJP-led Centre of hampering the work of the ruling Aam Aadmi Party in the city.

He said the Centre was scared of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s rising “popularity across the country”.

In response, Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party chief Manoj Tiwari attacked Kejriwal and dared the Aam Aadmi Party to contest all 70 seats of the Delhi Assembly.

“People’s answer: Don’t write letters and instead of contesting for the 20 seats, contest on all 70 seats,” Tiwari said in a tweet, attaching the open letter by Sisodia.

Tiwari advised Kejriwal to save his image and present himself before the people’s court.
