BJP: Congress is funding AAP
New Delhi, Sept 18: Politics and mud-slinging are two words that go hand in hand and this was evident on Tuesday at a rally that kick-started the BJP's election campaign in the capital.

BJP leaders locked horns with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) saying that the party was not there to change the politics but merely benefit the Congress in the upcoming Assembly elections.

Senior BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu said: "The battle is between Congress and BJP. There is not third party. If you give votes to them, the Congress will benefit, if not the other alternative is BJP.

BJP ministers said that AAP was targeting them as they were afraid of the party and the fact that they will win the elections.
"They are being funded by the Congress," Vijay Goel, BJP's Delhi President said. He was referring to the AAP's telephonic campaign, where a minute long audio tape with Kejriwal's vioce is played to target the voters.

In response to the allegations made by the BJP leaders, Manish Sisodia of AAP said that they were criticising both the Congress and the BJP.

"It says we need to remove the Congress because it is too corrupt but the BJP too is not above the board. The message says that if Vijay Goel becomes the CM, he wouldn't be different than Sheila Dikshit in terms of corruption," he said.

AAP, led by Arvind Kejriwal had launched its campaign much earlier than its political rivals in Delhi and is seen wooing the aam aadmi.
