New Delhi: The upcoming Lok Sabha polls are "waveless" and the people of Delhi would vote on the basis of local factors affecting their lives, AAP Lok Sabha candidate Raghav Chadha said. Chadha is one of the seven Lok Sabha candidates fielded by the AAP for the polls. He is being fielded by the party from South Delhi.

In an interview to PTI, the 30-year-old chartered accountant said politics of caste and religion have taken a "back seat" in the upcoming polls and the people of Delhi would vote on the basis of development issues. "I feel caste would not play a role in the upcoming elections. The more any political party tries to divide them (people of Delhi) the more they will lose.

Dominating factor would be the promises made by BJP and Congress," he said. "It is a waveless election where people would vote on the basis of local factors affecting their lives," he said. On the ongoing uncertainty over alliance with Congress in Delhi, Chadha said it looks the Congress is not "serious" about defeating the BJP.

"AAP lost Punjab because BJP transferred votes to the Congress. They ensured BJP votes got transferred to Congress with clinical precision...now Congress is returning the favour by not coming (onboard) with us," the AAP spokesperson said. "The BJP wants to punish the people of Delhi because they voted for us in 2015 and that is why they are creating hurdles in our development activities," he said.

"A full statehood for Delhi would solve the problem," he said. On AAP being seen as a new party or "inex­perienced" by people, Chadha said the AAP feels this so-called inexperience is "not a pain but a boon".
