Expressing confidence of the BJP's splendid show in the MCD polls, Union Information and Broadcasting Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu on Wednesday said that people have rejected the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) across the country while comparing the ruling party in Delhi with the Congress.
"In the entire country wherever by-elections or municipal or panchayat elections were held whether in Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Rajasthan or Chandigarh the people are voting for the BJP," Naidu said while addressing an election campaign in R.K. Puram.
"AAP raised the hope of the people in the city that is why the people voted for Modi ji in the Centre and Kejriwal in the state government. But unfortunately, this Arvind Kejriwal leaving the Delhi administration, the people of Delhi went to contest the elections becoming over-ambitious. Then he went to Goa, Punjab, Gujarat wherever he gone the people have rejected AAP. We have seen in Rajouri Garden also that people have rejected the AAP because the people are tired of AAP. There is not much difference between Congress and AAP," he added.
The MCD election is scheduled for April 23 and the result would be declared on 26 April.
The polls will decide the fate of 272 corporators.
