Pressure tactic to tie-up with Cong: BJP
The BJP on Saturday termed AAPs announcement of candidates for six out of seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi a pressure tactic adopted by the national capitals ruling party to force the Congress to firm up an alliance with it for the upcoming general elections
New Delhi: The BJP on Saturday termed AAP’s announcement of candidates for six out of seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi a “pressure tactic” adopted by the national capital’s ruling party to “force” the Congress to firm up an alliance with it for the upcoming general elections.
Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari asserted that his party will retain all the seven parliamentary seats in the city it won in 2014 Lok Sabha elections, no matter whether the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) contests the upcoming polls alone or by entering into an alliance with the Congress.
“Announcement of six Lok Sabha candidates by the AAP on Saturday is clearly a pressure tactics of Arvind Kejriwal to force the Congress for entering into an alliance for the upcoming elections. They (AAP) know, they do not stand a chance in the elections due to their failures in Delhi,” Tiwari said.
The BJP is confident that the Narendra Modi government's achievements and its welfare measures covering all sections of the society will ensure the party's victory in Lok Sabha polls, he said.
“From a housewife to the soldiers safeguarding our borders, the Modi government has taken care of all. We do not worry whether the AAP and the Congress fight elections together or independently, we will win again to make Modi Prime Minister for another five years.”
Senior BJP leader and co-incharge of the party’s Delhi unit for the Lok Sabha elections Jaibhan Singh Pawaiya claimed that AAP has declared its candidates to mislead the people.
An AAP leader from Bawana, Chaudhary Narayan Singh, and his supporters joined the BJP on Saturday in presence of Pawaiya and other party leaders at the saffron party's Delhi unit office.
On the occasion, he claimed the people of Delhi will remove the AAP from power in the 2020 Assembly elections.
