Don't vote for Cong or BJP: Kejriwal to people
NEW DELHI: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal warned people against voting for either the Congress or the Bharatiya Janata Party in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
"Don't vote for the Congress at all, if you vote for the Congress it will strengthen Narendra Modi," he said at an event in New Delhi. "Let your votes not be split and give all seven parliamentary seats in Delhi to the Aam Aadmi Party." He claimed that all the seven current BJP MPs had done nothing for Delhi's development and that citizens should not vote for them. The Aam Aadmi Party convenor's remarks came even as there is speculation about the party allying with the Congress for the General Elections. However, there has been no formal announcement on such a pre-poll alliance.
Senior Aam Aadmi Party leader Gopal Rai had earlier said that the party's political affairs committee would take a final decision on any alliance after January 15 after taking into account the views of leaders and workers from Delhi, Punjab and Haryana.
Meanwhile, Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee chief spokesperson Sharmistha Mukherjee slammed Kejriwal for asking the people of Delhi not to vote for the Congress party in the coming Parliamentary elections, saying that this clearly exposes the true face of Kejriwal as the B team of the BJP.
