Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate from North West Delhi Lok Sabha seat and famous Punjabi folk singer Hans Raj Hans said on Friday that he will file a defamation suit against AAP national convenor Arvind Kejriwal for maligning his image.
The exit has hit Aam Aadmi Party in days before voting in Delhi on May 12th for the National Election as earlier in this week AAP leader Manish Sisodia who is the Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi had alleged that seven lawmakers were 10 crores to switch the parties, Arvind Kejriwal had hit out Vijay Goel for saying that 14 Aam Aadmi Party lawmakers were in touch with BJP to switch.I worked for Aam Aadmi Party for 15 years and I was hurt by the lack of respect and peculiar type of functioning of the party which has diverted from its originality said Bajpai.
Earlier in the day, the Delhi CEO served a notice to Kejriwal, also the convener of the AAP, seeking his response over allegations made by leader of opposition Vijender Gupta that pamphlets were being distributed by the party asking voters to take bribe from the Congress and the BJP but cast their votes in favour of AAP in the May 12 polls. ”We sent a notice to Arvind Kejriwal, convener of AAP, seeking his response on the matter. Kejriwal was asked to reply by Wednesday, 5 pm. But as the letter was dispatched late, we would wait for his reply till Thursday, ” said a senior official from the Delhi CEO 's office.
Some places (like some people) punch way above their weight. Delhi can be counted among them. The National Capital Territory accounts for just seven Lok Sabha constituencies. Yet, for the past several weeks, the protracted negotiations between the Aam Aadmi Party and the Indian National Congress to arrive at an electoral understanding drew an inordinate amount of attention from politically conscious citizens across the country.Sharad Pawar and H.D. Deve Gowda, Mamata Banerjee and Chandrababu Naidu publicly and privately urged the leadership of the two parties to set aside their differences and take on the much bigger challenge of defeating the Bharatiya Janata Party.
Kejriwal railed against Rahul Gandhi, the Congress President for failed talks to form an alliance in Delhi between AAP and Congress. I am saying this with huge sadness that if Modi and (BJP President Amit) Shah return to power, only one person will be responsible - Rahul Gandhi,; Kejriwal told reporters at the manifesto release. Gandhi, on the other hand, tweeted about the possible alliance earlier this month and accused Kejriwal of making a U turn and holding off negotiations.Back to the manifesto, the 35 page document promises transformation in twelve key areas: Education, Health, Women Safety, Police Reforms, Zero Corruption, Jobs, Land and Housing, Prevention from Sealing, Cleanliness, Pollution, Transport, and Yamuna Rejuvenation. These reforms take up almost all of the manifesto but interlink in a way that forms the subtext of the only point AAP seems to be stressing on, Full Statehood for Delhi. Their tagline on the cover page itself is Le kar rahenge poorna rajya . It is clear early on that AAP s political strategy is to demand (and promise) full statehood with little to nothing else.
