The Aam Aadmi Party on Sunday hit back at the BJP after calling Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal a “mahapaap”, saying the saffron party should answer the questions raised by the AAP chief, instead of calling it a diversion strategy.
AAP’s national spokesperson and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh attacked the BJP at a press conference here, saying, “Don’t talk about here and there.
He alleged that the BJP has so far “forcibly hunted” 285 MLAs of other parties as part of ‘Operation Lotus’ and brought down governments in various states.
“The BJP should tell the country how much black money it has spent on buying, kidnapping and breaking 285 MLAs from their parties across the country,” Singh said. ,
The sharp reaction came as the BJP called Kejriwal a “mahapaap” following his allegation that AAP leaders were being targeted as the BJP fears defeat in the Gujarat polls later this year.
At the BJP’s press conference, its spokesperson Sambit Patra alleged that AAP was resorting to the “old drama” that unfolds before every election that “AAP was winning because others were upset”.
In response came Sanjay Singh’s press conference. Seeing such a big conclave of elected representatives of AAP, it is natural for the BJP to panic. “Instead of responding to the issues raised in the conclave, BJP’s Sambit Patra spoke baseless in his press conference,” he alleged.
Singh said, “I want to ask some specific questions to Patra, although they may quip him. The BJP should tell the nation how much black it has used to buy, kidnap and break 285 MLAs from their parties across the country.” Money spent.” Told. BJP should also disclose the source of money spent on this.
Singh also alleged that the BJP got a “cut” when the Modi government “waived off crores of billionaires’ loans”, and demanded the party tell the country ‘how much money it got as commission’. .
Singh alleged that the BJP was trying to implicate Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and other AAP leaders in “false cases” of corruption to stop the Arvind Kejriwal-led party in Gujarat, while its “Operation Lotus” was launched by the AAP government. failed to drop. in Delhi and Punjab”.
He said AAP leaders have been acquitted by courts in 135 cases out of the total 169 cases registered against them during the BJP rule. “I want to ask BJP and Sambit Patra whether Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and your party president JP Nadda should apologize to these AAP leaders or not,” Singh said.
Singh alleged that the BJP has left no stone unturned in its effort to “destroy” the AAP. “But your caravan is not going to stop,” he claimed. AAP is going to repeat the history it has created in Delhi because people stand with the party and Kejriwal.
