New Delhi,Oct 16 (): Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal has betrayed Anna Hazare and is capable of betraying anybody. Can you trust him? asks a recorded voice message that goes to Delhi voters on their phones.
A poll for ABP says that Aam Aadmi will get around 16 seats and this time would be a serious contender. Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party were till now saying that Aam Aadmi is not a force to reckon with. It was Kejriwal who started the campaign for his party Aam Aadmi through pre-recorded telephonic messages and radio broadcast campaign. Yet another campaign is that some of the candidates of Aam Aadmi are having criminal background.
The identity of the source of the call is not yet known. Neither the BJP nor the Congress has not reacted to this mysterious call. AAP said that it could be the ruling Congress or the BJP and the call is not something that the party is worried about.
Delhi BJP president Vijay Goel has filed a criminal complaint against Kejriwal for propagating charges of corruption through his radio and TV debates as well pre-recorded telephone messages. Goel has sought apology and Rs 1 crore as damages.
The latest is that AAP has given seats to tainted candidates. The party says it is a smear campaign against its nominees and if anyone comes up with any evidence that the candidate is found guilty, will have their nomination cancelled immediately. It cancelled the nomination of its Shahdara candidate Surendra Sharma for having some police cases against him. AA says that it will cancel any candidature even on the election day, if found that the candidate has a tainted background.
The party candidate Deshraj Raghav from Uttam Nagar for his involvement in a ration shop scam and Vinod Kumar Binny from Lakshmi Nagar for land grabbing says a complaint but the party probe did not get any fact that shows their involvement in those cases and says it is a smear campaign against their strong candidates.
