A drama, mockery of democracy: Delhi BJP

| | New Delhi

Delhi BJP leaders termed Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his cabinet colleagues’ sit in at the L-G office a “drama” and “mockery of democracy”, and claimed that it was done keeping in mind the general elections next year.

Manoj Tiwari, the chief of Delhi BJP, alleged that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had created “illusions” in 2013 and 2015, and is creating another “illusion” over the full statehood demand in view of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

He said the demand of full statehood requires debate and Kejriwal should participate in it instead of staging dharna at the Lieutenant Governor’s office.

“Making mockery of Democracy, No Work only Drama (sic),” Tiwari tweeted.

“A new film of Chief Minister is running in Delhi. Its title is ‘Chahe Kuch Karlo, Hum Nahin Sudharenge’ (Do whatever you wish, We will not change),” he said.

The Delhi BJP chief said that he would lead a protest march at Kejriwal’s residence at 10 am tomorrow over the water crisis being faced by the people of the national capital. MPs, MLAs, leaders and workers of Delhi BJP would take part in the protest.

BJP MLA and Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta alleged that Kejriwal and his colleagues were indulging in “arm twisting and threatening” to influence the L-G over their demands.

“Forcible occupation of the L-G office, dharna on the road and illegal demand for action against IAS officers clearly establish anarchist mindset of Kejriwal and his team,” Gupta told reporters.
