New Delhi [India], Mar. 27 : With Bawana MLA Ved Prakash joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ahead of the crucial MCD polls, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday alleged that the saffron party does not believe in democracy and is making desperate attempts to destabilize the government in Delhi for nefarious gains.
AAP's Sanjay Singh told the media here that the BJP wants to expel governments and rule in this country.
"We witnessed how they murdered democracy and formed the governments in Arunchal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur.
They have begun doing the same in Delhi ahead of the MCD polls. They have begun attempts' to destabilize our government, but the people through their votes in the MCD polls will give apt reply to the Bharatiya Janata Party," said Singh.
"The Bharatiya Janata Party will have to face defeat in the same manner as they did in 2015 when they could win only three seats," he added.
Ved Prakash, who earlier in the day joined the saffron party at its Delhi unit office in the presence of Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari, said that he was feeling suffocated in the AAP.
He also alleged that Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP has failed to deliver on the promises it had made in the run up to the 2015 assembly elections.
Stating that there was discontent among the people over the AAP Government's failure to address their grievances, Prakash further said there are around 35 MLAs who are not happy with the party leadership.
On April 22, Delhi will elect the 272 members of its municipal corporation. The municipal corporation, presently governed by the BJP, decides crucial matters such as health and sanitation.
