Don’t vote for BJP, AAP in Delhi civic polls: Amarinder

New Delhi, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Thursday urged the people of Delhi not to vote for either the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) or the Aam Admi Party (AAP) in the coming municipal polls.

Speaking at a civic reception organised by the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC), Amarinder said: “The CAG (Comptroller and Auditor General) report had proved that Kejriwal had been spending the money of Delhi’s citizens to further his ambitions in Punjab.”

“The people of Punjab have defeated Kejriwal’s nefarious designs and it is now the turn of the people of Delhi to finish off whatever is left of the AAP leader in the coming civic election,” Amarinder said.

Elections to the 272 wards in three municipal corporations of Delhi are scheduled for April 23. The results will be out on April 26.

Warning the people of Delhi against trusting the BJP with their votes, the Punjab Chief Minister said: “BJP was an ally of the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) in Punjab and together they had looted the small state, leaving it with a huge debt of Rs 182,000 crore.”

Amarinder said that the municipal polls victory would be another celebration for the Congress, which had to be restored to its pristine glory.

He said he was happy to have fulfilled his promise to Congress President Sonia Gandhi to ensure that the party flag flies high in Punjab.
