New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) workers will take to the streets amid the ongoing controversy over the mayoral elections in Delhi. Both will protest outside each other’s office on Tuesday.
The election of mayor and deputy mayor in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi was postponed for the third consecutive time on Monday amid ruckus in the house.
There was a tremendous uproar in the House over giving voting rights to nominated councillors. The AAP objected to this after which the House was adjourned indefinitely.
On the same issue, AAP leader Atishi had said on Monday that the BJP was not allowed to hold elections today, many of its MPs were not there today. Manoj Tiwari, Gautam Gambhir, Hans Raj Hans were absent, so they did not allow elections to be held.
But due to lack of elections, the people of Delhi are suffering. The Aam Aadmi Party is going to the Supreme Court today and said that they will appeal that the MCD mayor election should be held in the next week-10 days under the supervision of the Supreme Court. Satya Sharma arbitrarily adjourns the House indefinitely.
At the same time, the BJP had now accused the AAP of luring its party councillors. Today, BJP leaders targeted AAP by holding a press conference on this issue.
BJP leader Virendra Sachdeva had said that at this time the AAP is confused, there is a split in its councilor party, that is why it is constantly postponing the elections and their leaders are contacting our councillors.
