New Delhi, Nov 3: Amid speculations over fresh polls in New Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal seems to back to his previous avatar. He has begun making headlines with his shocking statements.

Taking examples of communal clashes in Trilokpuri, Nand Nagri, Bawana and Mundka, the national convener of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) hurled serious allegations against BJP.

Kejriwal asserted that people in Delhi were upset with BJP which, according to him, has been playing the hate politics by inciting violence in sensitive areas.

Turning to micro-blogging site Twitter, Kejriwal on Monday, Nov 3 claimed that people across the national capital, police and media together can save Delhi.

Delhi has been under President Rule since Feb 17, 2014. Kejriwal's party had shocked everyone with its performance in Delhi assembly elections 2013. While BJP won 31 seats, AAP surprised everyone after winning 28 seats. As all parties fell short of the magic number of 36 to form the government, Kejriwal's party took outside support from Congress which won 8 seats only.

However, following uproar over Janlokpal Bill in Delhi assembly, Kejriwal and his cabinet had submitted mass resignations on Feb 14, 2014. Now, the party started demanding fresh poll in Delhi. The BJP, which has been asked to form the government, is yet to take final decision. A few media reports quoted sources as saying that BJP may go for fresh polls in Feb 2015.

According to experts, BJP may get majority number of seats in Delhi if it goes for fresh polls. After its landslide victory in Lok Sabha election 2014 and assembly elections in Maharashtra, Haryana, BJP is expected to get victory in other states as well. Now, serious allegations such as inciting riots may harm the image of the party and Kejriwal's statements may become deadly for BJP.
