New Delhi, Feb 11: At a time when triumphant Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is soaking in the thumping victory in Delhi, party's founder member Shanti Bhushan on Wednesday trained guns at AAP saying the party has diverted from its true objective of establishing clean politics.
The party's octogenarian leader, Bhushan, was quoted as saying that he's happy with the party's victory but will not congratulate Arvind Kejriwal because leadership strayed from objectives.
Just few days ahead of the Delhi Assembly polls, Bhushan added to the political heat by praising BJP's Chief Ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi saying she is a good administrator.
Speaking to reporters, Bhushan had said Kiran Bedi is capable of providing Delhi a clean administration and that he would be happy if she becomes the Chief Minister.
Welcoming Bedi's elevation as BJP's chief ministerial candidate, Bhushan said, "She has been an able administrator and is likely to give Delhi a clean and effective government."
But, Shanti Bhushan's praise for BJP's CM candidate too didn't prove beneficial for BJP was reduced to 3 seats when the results of the 70-member Assembly were announced on Tuesday. BJP's CM candidate Kiran Bedi too could not win from Krishna Nagar constituency, which is has been BJP's bastion for the past two decades.
AAP under the leadership of Arvind Kejriwal registered a resounding victory in the country's history by winning 67 seats (96 % seats) in a state assembly election.
It's a miraculous win for a party like AAP, which is still in its adolescent age, against BJP which was looking undefeated until recently.
