New Delhi. Accusing Arvind Kejriwal of glorifying corruption, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is doing the same old drama that it has been doing before every election. BJP’s remarks came hours after Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal said that the BJP was targeting AAP out of fear of defeat in Gujarat.
On Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s suggestion that AAP leaders be ready for arrest by central agencies, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra accused them of “glorifying” corruption and said the chief minister was “tainted” due to mounting pressure on evidence. There is a history of comrades coming to the rescue of their comrades before resigning. Patra alleged that Kejriwal is complacent and statement is brave. Those who after gaining power in two states are considering themselves as God. Earlier, the AAP national convener compared his party to Kanha, a child form of Lord Krishna, who killed big demons.
The BJP spokesperson said the man who took a ‘commission’ from the liquor business compares himself with ‘Lord Krishna’. Patra said that Kejriwal always claims before any state elections that his party is winning and others are upset. Patra said the AAP split in Himachal Pradesh and its president left the party in Uttarakhand, while Kejriwal had made tall claims about his party’s prospects in the two hill states.
Earlier in the day, Kejriwal launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP, accusing them of trying to crush the AAP in the name of fighting corruption. Kejriwal said that he fears defeat for the Prime Minister and the BJP in the elections to be held in Gujarat this year.
