Former Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari on Tuesday said the ruling Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi has made a mockery of the country's democracy in respect to the Mayor election within the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD).
Tiwari, who represent the North East Delhi Lok Sabha constituency, said that the Mayor's election has been disrupted once again by the AAP councillors after which several questions are being raised.
State BJP spokesperson Harish Khurana and councillor Sandeep Kapoor were present in the press conference addressed by Tiwari. He demanded action to be taken against AAP's goons who assaulted BJP councillors and MPs present on the occasion. He said that whatever happened inside the corporation house on January 6 the people of Delhi saw it and today the question is also why the AAP is so afraid to give Delhi its mayor. Tiwari alleged the goons of the Aam Aadmi Party, who were inside the House as well as outside, together behaved indecently with the BJP councillors and MPs. “Democracy and the Constitution of the country is being made fun of by the leaders of the Aam Aadmi Party.
The AAP councillors remained silent till the swearing-in process, but as the mayor's election was about to take place, they once again started a ruckus. BJP has never claimed that its Mayor is winning. BJP is only contesting elections but AAP is running away from elections and is finding various excuses for it,” Tiwari added.
