Expressing confidence about the BJP’s victory in the upcoming Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) polls on December 4, the party chief JP Nadda on Sunday said that the people are eager to vote for the saffron party as they are fed up with the AAP.
Nadda and BJP MP Dr Harsh Vardhan were campaigning for the upcoming MCD elections in Delhi’s Wazirpur Industrial Area.
“The people of Delhi are eager to vote for the BJP in the upcoming MCD elections to resolve various civic issues. The public are fed up with the AAP’s works and are appreciating the BJP, he said.
On the AAP’s claim of being honest, Nadda said: “The AAP used to say that its leaders are honest, but today Satyendar Jain is in jail for corruption. They have opened a massage centre in the Tihar Jail and made a rapist a physiotherapist.”
Nadda listened to the ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme along with the people and workers at Wazirpur and later addressed them.
Earlier in the day, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami held a door-to-door campaign in Delhi’s Moti Nagar area for the upcoming MCD elections.
Dhami has been in the national capital to campaign for ensuring the BJP’s victory in the MCD polls.
The Uttarakhand Chief Minister launched a scathing attack on the AAP and said that Delhi will vote for the BJP in the upcoming MCD polls in the national capital.
Dhami exuded confidence in the victory of the BJP in the upcoming elections of the MCD in the national capital and said that the party will win with a majority of votes as people have seen the work of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP.
“People have seen the work of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP. Delhi is also observing how the party which promised to uproot corruption has been establishing it. The videos of their ministers are out regularly,” said the Uttarakhand Chief Minister.
The elections for the 250-ward Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) will be held on December 4 while the counting of votes will be done on December 7.
The polls to the Municipal Corporation of Delhi on December 4 are shaping up to be a two-way contest between the BJP, which currently holds the civic reins in the national capital, and the AAP, which is in power in the state.
This year, the Central government unified the three corporations – East Delhi Municipal Corporation, South Delhi Municipal Corporation and North Delhi Municipal Corporation – into one MCD.
After a Home Ministry notification, the total number of MCD wards in Delhi has been reduced to 250 from earlier 272. As many as 42 wards are in the reserved category.
In the last civic body polls in 2017, the BJP won 181 of the 270 wards. The AAP had won 48 wards, while the Congress managed to win 27. Polling was not held for two seats due to the death of candidates.
