AAP declares war on Najeeb Jung
"The LG could write to the President and recommend fresh elections. But he too is human and needs to save his seat. He knows that if he doesn't listen to BJP, they will remove him in five minutes. He is being controlled by BJP," said Kejriwal.
Party MLA from Malviya Nagar Somnath Bharti went a step ahead and said Jung had been "Modi-fied". Referring to the meeting the party had with the LG last month, Bharti said Jung had "feigned ignorance about the statement issued by BJP's Harsh Vardhan in December 2013 in which he said that with 32 MLAs, BJP did not have the necessary number of seats to stake claim to form government".
In this "jan sansad", AAP wasn't disappointed by the turnout-roughly 8,000 people turned up at the venue. Among them were some its core supporters like autorickshaw drivers, e-rickshaw drivers and UPSC aspirants locking horns with the government. Kejriwal and other AAP leaders who took to the stage, including MP Bhagwant Mann, criticized the Centre for price rise despite its promise of 'achche din'.
"Both Congress and BJP do not want fresh elections since they are convinced that they will lose. In fact, it would be best not to vote for Congress since it would be a waste of your vote. It is the people of Delhi who want fresh elections because they need a government to ease their problems. Since BJP has come in the Centre, food prices, rail fares, power tariff have all gone up. Why has the government allowed the discoms to get away with the tariff hike? Only a party like AAP can handle them. Despite court directions to frame a policy on e-rickshaws, the government sat over the matter till they were banned. Who are these good days for?" said Kejriwal.
In the middle of the main Jantar Mantar road was a protest by the Gaushala Sangh of Haryana. AAP supporters happily shared their space with around six cows which were tethered to the spot and braved the smell of cow dung that hung heavy in the evening air. "There was much criticism against AAP's decision to quit government but people seem to be drifting back to it because they do not appear happy with the BJP government," said Balwant Kumar Singh, an NGO worker who had come from Kalkaji. more
LG must first ask for a list of supporting MLAs before inviting anyone to form government.
None of the three parties can explain how it will be possible to form a government.
Can anyone convince, if the LG dissolves the assembly immediately, fresh elections will help? more
