The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has countered the 18 questions posed by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) by raising 14 of its own.
Party leader Harsh Vardhan called the rookie party the ‘B’ team of the Congress and said that it was trying to get the former ruling party back to power by forming a government with its support.
“AAP had entered into a secret understanding with the Congress government and the party even before the elections. They acted like an ally of the Congress during the elections because they had information that they were going to lose the election due to price rise and corruption. Why are AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal and his advisors changing their statement repeatedly and misleading the people whereas they could have made their stand clear on forming the government,” said Vardhan.
In his letter, the party’s chief ministerial face in the recent elections asked AAP to clarify on these following points so that the people of Delhi may know the reality about the misleading politics of this party.
AAP leader Kejriwal on Saturday shot off an 18-point letter to both Congress president Sonia Gandhi and BJP chief Rajnath Singh, seeking their response to the crucial issues he had promised the people of Delhi in his manifesto.
He announced that their responses would be made public.
“AAP had contested the elections opposing the Congress and the BJP. After winning 28 seats in the elections, the party announced that AAP will neither cooperate with the Congress or the BJP and nor will it seek their help. After that, the party changed its agenda at the instance of the Congress party. Its leaders started saying that only after ascertaining the views of the people they will take a decision on forming the government,” said Vardhan.
Some of the 14 points raised by Vardhan question the delay in forming the government, whether it will seek Congress’ support and how the Delhi government’s functioning had been hindered in the absence of any government.
Vardhan said Kejriwal and others in the party use objectionable language in their correspondence and public statements. The BJP’s state unit president Vijay Goel had earlier said that his party would offer constructive support to the AAP.
