BJP ended stalemate over its Delhi CM candidate by announcing Dr. Harshvardhan’s name. The same was supported by state President Vijay Goel, who was the other top contender. Harshvardhan has a good clean image and is expected to tackle Aam Aadmi Party’s growing popularity. This ended weeks of speculation as presented in earlier post below.
The announcement has rattled Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal. He stopped short of saying, how can BJP anoint an honest person, I am the only honest person in Delhi. He added that Dr. had supported Shiela Dixit in a program some years ago. AK, haven’t you voted for any political party earlier (before you formed your own party). Does that mean that you support that party? Grow up.
He accused Harshvardhan of not doing enough to make Municipal Corporation of Delhi corruption free. AK, you were in Income Tax Department earlier. What steps did you take to reduce corruption there? Stop blaming politicians, and at least the honest ones, for every wrong thing. Your friend and ally, Dr, Vishwas, like you, has taken a foolish decision to contest against the Dr. Jamanat japt ho jayegi, pls save him. By the way, is he a member of your party? He had earlier said that he is not part of AAP. Whatever, it’s your internal matter.
AAP has got nervous. Dr.’s anointment has rejuvenated BJP cadre and Vijay Goel must have been offered a Cabinet berth if NDA comes to power at Center, so he is motivated to ensure BJP’s victory. Now it’s between two honest men, Harshvardhan and Arvind. Let’s see whom people chose. Interesting fight! May the best man win! AK don’t go by Dr’s mild manners, he has the similar middle class appeal to his persona.
