New Delhi, May 13 (UNI) Delhi state BJP today said the forthcoming elections for the Cantonment Board would be a mandate against the Congress party in Delhi.
Introducing the eight party candidates for the Board elections to be held on May 18 to the media, state party president Harshvardhan said though the elections were for a local body, it would give a glimpse of things to come.
''The anti-people policies of the Congress has shaken the people to the limit where they see the government as the cause of their troubles. We are sure that we would win all the eight seats for the Cantonment Board.'' Senior party leader Prof V K Melhotra said the elections for the Board were being held after ten years, though it should have been held after five years.
''The Congress had on its own put up a nominated member who had usurped power of all the eight candidates and ruled unscruplously for the last so many years without the people's mandate.'' The party is sure that the people would teach them a lesson for this despotic attitude and make the BJP candidates victorious, he added.
Three of the eight party candidates standing for the Cantonment Board elections on May 18 are woman.
