Arvind Kejriwal said that a dent in BJP’s popularity had resulted in the party running away from Delhi Assembly Elections

By on July 4, 2014

All MLAs of Aam Aadmi Party met President Pranab Mukherjee on Thursday to demand immediate dissolution of the legislative assembly. “We would urge you to kindly save the Constitution by dissolving the Delhi Assembly and ordering fresh elections immediately to prevent an assault on the basic foundations of the country’s democracy,” Arvind Kejriwal said in a memorandum. The AAP has alleged that the BJP has approached 15 of its MLAs in the last few days, offering them money ranging from Rs 10 crore to 20 crore. “In the last few days, BJP has approached 15 of our MLAs, with offers of ministerial berths, properties and cash ranging from Rs 10 crore to Rs 20 crore. When this did not work, the BJP has now resorted to making life threats on our MLAs. On the evening of July 1, 2014, Bandana Kumari, our MLA from Shalimar Bagh, was given a life threat. She has already filed a police complaint in this regard. We are attaching a CD with this letter which contains CCTV footage of the people who came to threaten Bandana Kumari,” Kejriwal said. Arvind Kejriwal wrote that a dent in BJP’s popularity had resulted in the party running away from Delhi Assembly Elections. “The NDA government was sworn in on May 26 at the Centre. People had very high hopes from this new government. In the last one month, however, the hopes of people have been shattered because the prices of almost all commodities have been rising. No steps have been taken to check corruption and no steps have been taken so far which could give people a hope that things would improve in the future. This has severely dented BJP’s popularity… They are afraid that if elections are held in the near future, BJP would lose very badly. Therefore, BJP is making desperate attempts to poach MLAs from other parties,” Arvind Kejriwal wrote in a memorandum. The AAP party workers said that the president has assured them that he will look into the matter. Memorandum submitted by Arvind Kejriwal to President Pranab Mukherjee:
