Kejriwal's latest salvo: After failed attempt to malign BJP, now AAP attacks L-G

Written by:

Arvind Kejriwal's latest salvo.
The Aam Aadmi Party very well knows how to stay in media light. Today, in its latest attempt to garner attention, the party chief Arvind Kejriwal accused Delhi's Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung of preventing his MLAs from sending relief to Jammu and Kashmir for flood victims.

Raising questions, the party convenor tweeted on Friday, "27 MLAs of AAP wrote to Delhi govt to transfer Rs.20 lakhs from each MLA's funds to J-K CM fund. Sources- LG has objected to it. Why?"

"Last year, Rs.10 lakhs from each MLAs funds were tfd (sic) for uttarakhand flood relief. Then why an objection this year?" he further said.

Last week, the AAP said its MLAs will donate Rs.20 lakh each for the relief and rescue operations to flood-ravaged Jammu and Kashmir where nearly 200 people have died.

Is this AAP's latest salvo?

AAP's whose latest attack is on Jung had earlier accused him of batting for the BJP in Delhi and had also said that he invited BJP to form government in Delhi.

"It's not the LG, but it's (BJP president) Amit Shah who is taking decisions. It is the Centre which is ruling Delhi," senior party leader and AAP MLA Manish Sisodia had said.

He had also criticised Jung for saying that if elections were conducted, work and other activities would come to a halt for two months.

"I don't subscribe to LG's logic because on one hand you are saying that people will suffer. It is better that work halts for two months during elections than for eight months when people are without any government.

"Today's government is an executive government. Executives work in a closed room. They don't have an interaction with public," he had said. Sisodia had also said that the current administration under LG was not people oriented.

The baffled AAP

Is AAP baffled after a survey conducted by India Today Group-Hansa concluded that nearly 50 per cent of the respondents said that they would vote for a BJP government if fresh polls are held in Delhi. And more amazingly,as per the survey, approximately half of the residents in Delhi want fresh polls to be held in the national capital.

However, as per the survey, Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), was the second choice of Delhi and got 41 per cent votes for the same.

42 per cent of the respondents also said that they want Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung to call the BJP to form government in Delhi and re-polls should not be conducted in the state.

And appallingly, an overwhelming 56 per cent of respondents do not want the AAP to form government.

AAP's failed attempt to malign BJP?

After doing a sting and blaming BJP leaders from Delhi for including into horse-trading with an AAP MLA to form government in the national capital, AAP thought it has done well to malign BJP.

But, majority in Delhi did not buy it as 38 per cent of the respondents rejected AAP's sting and said it is a farce to malign the BJP. While only 30 per cent of the respondents believe the sting was true. Hence, the sting controversy will not affect BJP's fortune greatly.

After making repeated attempts to malign BJP, AAP is trying to gain the lost confidence, but what they don't understand is by putting false allegations on others they can't rise, rather will further fall as they say, "the true prevails, not the untrue."
