MCD polls: Nadda takes Kejriwal hostage, claims ‘AAP will lose all seats’

National President of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), JP Nadda, said on Friday that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will lose the deposit on all 67 constituencies in the Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections and will suffer the same fate in the Gujarat polls, according to the PTI news agency.

Speaking at a public meeting for the Delhi citizens’ polls at Patel Nagar, the BJP chief cited the ruling party’s development works in the municipal corporation and challenged the Kejriwal government’s deputy CM Manish Sisodia to put even two works of his government in the national capital.

“In Himachal, they are contesting all 67 parliament seats. I can state in writing that they will lose the deposit on all these seats. They will meet the same fate in Gujarat,” he said.

Nadda launched a scathing attack on AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal, saying he contested Lok Sabha polls against Narendra Modi in Varanasi and licked the dust, according to PTI reports.

The Kejriwal-led AAP had also contested parliamentary elections in all constituencies in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Goa where the candidates lost deposits in most of the seats. He also stated that AAP’s CM candidate in Uttarakhand joined the saffron party, as did the state president of Himachal Pradesh of the party.

“In Delhi, the municipal corporations have regularized temporary workers, set up 17 parking garages, installed LED street lighting, established smart classrooms in 907 schools, opened 52 new schools, including one in Lajpat Nagar, which is “one of the best in the world”. 3,200 new beds in its hospitals, set up new health centers and pharmacies, among other works,” he said.

“They (AAP) arranged health facilities even in prison by providing massage facilities. Also in the field of education, they have done a good job and turned a rapist into a therapist,” Nadda said, referring to alleged videos of imprisoned AAP minister Satyendar Jain being seen getting massages in Tihar prison.

Elections for 250 MCD wards will take place on 4 December.
