Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Dilip Pandey alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had converted the three municipal corporations - East, South and North - into centres of corruption.
"Now the BJP has proved our charge by announcing that they won't give ticket to any of the 153 sitting councillors of the party," Pandey said.
"First, the BJP allowed its 153 councillors to loot Delhi residents and now they are preparing another crop of corrupt politicians and giving them an opportunity to do it all over again. This is the only message the people of Delhi can take from this," Pandey said.
On the issue of tampering of Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs), the AAP leader said the questions raised by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal were based on evidence and needed a proper answer.
Kejriwal had on Wednesday alleged that EVMs may have been tampered with in Punjab, resulting in 20-25 per cent of AAP votes getting transferred to the SAD-BJP alliance and thus propping up the Congress to power.
He said there were numerous booths where his party got only "two, three or four" votes though the number of its own activists and family members were in dozens.
The BJP has been in power in the municipal bodies for the last 10 years.
