BJP has approached AAP candidates: Manish Sisodia

BJP has approached AAP candidates: Manish Sisodia

New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) member Manish Sisodia said on Saturday that their party candidates might have been approached by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members with a mandate, which they have declined.

“Some of our candidates have given information that a few members of the BJP had approached them. It is not confirmed yet if they had approached them with a mandate but they tried doing something on similar lines,” Sisodia said.

“Our candidates have given them a good answer. If we have asked for votes from the public saying we do not trust the Congress or the BJP, then we cannot go with either of them. It will be like betraying the people,” he added.

Furthermore he said that the Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) has sent them a notice for overspending in the elections.

“The SDM who has been working with Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit for long has given us a notice saying, we have spent more than we were supposed to during the elections, but the truth is that Arvind Kejriwal spent only Rs three lakhs in his constituency,” said Sisodia.

“They are saying that we spent over 16 lakhs in the concert ‘Jeet Ki Gunj’ alone whereas the artists had performed for free. But, they said that they do not care if they took money or not, they will count the money that would have been charged. This is unjustified,” he added.

Adding to that he said that the sending of a notice by the Election Commission was a political stunt of the losing party and to spite Kejriwal.

“It is a political stunt of the losing party just to spite Arvind Kejriwal. We will reply to this notice, and we do not think this notice is going to stay for long,” he added.

The counting for the Delhi polls will take place on December 8. The polls were held on December 4.

The Congress, BJP and the Aam Aadmi Party are the main parties in the race to form the next government in the state.
