Will expose the real anti-Delhi face of BJP in LS polls: AAP
NEW DELHI: The Aam Aadmi Party leaders said it would work to expose the real anti-Delhi face of the BJP in the coming Lok Sabha elections by placing before the residents of the national capital the facts of BJP central government's lies and deceits during last five years with the sole intention of causing injustice to Delhi. "AAP will take to the people all the manifestoes of BJP released in every previous election including the latest Delhi's specific manifesto for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, in which the BJP had promised statehood for Delhi if it was voted to power. Delhi voters gave them all seven Lok Sabha seats in 2014 only to be deceived by the Modi-Shah duo which does not like Delhi at all," the party noted in a statement.
The statement added that the party will tell the people of Delhi that it is time for them to decide that hollow promises and falsehoods will no longer be tolerated and only those who are willing to take up the cause of people of Delhi will be elected for Lok Sabha." People of Delhi are no longer willing to tolerate those who treat their vote as inferior to those living in other parts of the country. Who will ensure admission of Delhi students in colleges? Why Delhi's educated youth don't get government jobs? Why is the security of Delhi residents tertiary for Delhi Police? The AAP will also take door-to-door the May 2015 notification of the Modi government, which snatched away the legal powers of the elected Delhi government," the party observed.
The AAP leaders said that the MHA notification was issued by the Modi government barely three months after people of Delhi had elected their state government with highest ever electoral mandate in the history of independent India, in February 2015. Through this notification, Central government illegally amended the Constitution. "Through this notification, the Modi government snatched Services and the Anti Corruption Branch (ACB) from the elected Delhi government. The Constitution of India had permitted Centre's control on Land, Police and Public Order in Delhi, and though it is unjustified, people of Delhi had accepted this position," AAP statement noted
