Delhi assembly polls: BJP to woo Muslim voters to corner AAP, Congress?

New Delhi, Nov 7: As the decks have been cleared for the Delhi assembly elections, the BJP, besides launching its membership drive, will also reportedly woo the Muslim voters.

According to a report published in TOI, the party will organize special programmes in Muslim dominated areas, including riot-hit Trilokpuri, Bawana, Okhla, Seelampur, Mustafabad and other areas starting from Wednesday, Nov 12.

Atif Rasheed, the head of Delhi BJP's minority cell was quoted saying as, "We want the Muslim community to know about PM Narendra Modi's vision. We want people to know that BJP stands for development."

"In Okhla, BJP got 22,000 votes in the 2013 assembly elections and 39,000 in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. It is clear that people voted for development", he further said.

Meanwhile, AAP announced on Tuesday that its convener and former Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal will be pitted against BJP's veteran leader Jagdish Mukhi, who is the senior most BJP leader in the state.

But, the BJP has downplayed AAP's claim by saying the party is not going to declare its CM candidate this time.

As per the present political situation in Delhi, it is being speculated that it is going to be BJP versus AAP, with Congress, nowhere in the picture.

In the past, Muslims have supported Congress in the national capital, but this time it seems that BJP is putting all its efforts to bring minority voters to its side.
