Former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Nitin Gadkari on Wednesday termed Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as a party of “confused leaders” and questioned why it was not forming the government in Delhi when the Congress had offered it an unconditional support.
He also called it a party of right-wing Maoists. Gadkari was talking to mediapersons in his hometown from where he plans to contest the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Referring to AAP’s recent statement on seeking people’s opinion on whether they should form the government, he said, “The people have voted it assume power. Then why it is escaping from the responsibility for which they got a mandate by giving silly arguments.”
He said the party was totally confused as it sent a list of 18 conditions to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi which offered it an unconditional support.
Gadkari said the people would soon be disillusioned with AAP and the process had already started.
Replying to a question, the BJP leader confirmed that he would contest Lok Sabha elections from Nagpur and said AAP leader Anjali Damania was welcome to contest against him.
Gadkari, who is the chairman of BJP Vision Document 2025, informed that the document would be completed soon. The opinions of economic experts, retired IAS officers and other prominent personalities of the country were incorporated while making the document, he further said.
