"BJP leaders have thrived on false campaign, it is our duty as the new-era party to falsify their claims... The ruling BJP has been claiming that they have cleaned Sabaramati river, but it has been one of the most polluted rivers," he said.

"They are claiming that they will clean Yamuna. But what they did to Sabarmati, people know very well and we are sure that Delhiites will not be lured by their false campaign," he said.

Gujarat AAP spokesperson Harshil Nayak said that around 30 to 50 party workers are heading to Delhi every day.

"Party workers from cities like Ahmedabad, Surat, Vadodara, Jamnagar and Rajkot have gone to Delhi to support the local party unit.Those workers are going to Delhi on their own will and on their expenditure," he said.
