The MCD elections are scheduled on April 21 and before the elections, Kejriwal is seen making fake promises again to the people of Delhi. Earlier he gave a statement that if the Delhihites vote for AAP and give them a clear majority he would turn Delhi into London. In one of his rallies when Kejriwal was giving his speech people started chanting “Modi Modi” for which Kejriwal got frustrated.
Now ahead of the elections Kejriwal has got one more big blow from his own party workers. Close to 15 AAP workers joined BJP on 21st March. BJP claimed that they decided to join the party as they were upset with the functioning of Aam Aadmi Party.
Hundreds of AAP supporters also gathered at Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari’s residence to join the party. Tiwari said this showed that people had lost faith in the AAP government.
Most of the workers are from Rohini and Sultanpur Majra. Naved Siddiqui, who claims to be the head of AAP’s minority wing in Kirari assembly constituency, said, “AAP is giving tickets to corrupt people. Genuine workers have no say.”
BJP claimed that AAP’s Rohini district’s president Aman Dabas and vice-president Anju Dabas, Sher Singh (president of Sultanpur Majra assembly constituency), Manisha Singh (chief of the constituency’s women’s wing and vice-president of SC/ST wing) also joined.
AAP sources said there were a few known faces, including Aman Dabas associated with the youth wing. “About 10 days ago we were told that he and his wife had joined Swaraj India. Now we hear that they have joined BJP,” said a senior member.
“Other people who have left are largely from Sultanpur Majra and seem to be close to the local MLA Sandeep Kumar who was suspended from the party last year. He was not consulted on ticket distribution and that is why some disgruntled people might have left,” he added.
