After forming governments in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur following recently held assembly elections, BJP National President Amit Shah today asked his party activists to work hard to win the elections of the Municipal Corporations of Delhi as it would be a base to form the government in Delhi state in future.

Addressing a party workers’ rally, “Panch Parmeshwar” at Ramlila Ground, Shah asked the activists to work hard in the national Capital, appealing electorates to exercise their franchise in favour of BJP candidates defeating the Aam Aadmi Party in the municipal elections to be held on April 23.

He said Delhi is the capital of the country. After coming to power at the Centre in the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the BJP has been winning most of the assembly elections. It should also win all three municipal corporations elections.

Ever since the AAP has come to power in Delhi, corruption increased in the government, ministers are involved in scandals, political career of 11 MLAs of the AAP is on stake and the Law Minister was arrested in fake degree racket. Besides, all the development works in Delhi came to a halt as Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is always in fighting mood with the Centre. “We want a government in Delhi that works in cooperation with the Centre “, said Shah.

He said, “The BJP believed in working, not in talking. Just after completing five years, we will explain in detail to the people about the achievements of the Modi government. We had assured to give befitting reply to Pakistan for terror attack. With order of the Prime Minister, the Army conducted surgical strike in Pakistan, around two crore women given LPG cylinders, begun Startup India and Make in India schemes.”

The AAP had assured people for opening 500 new schools, appointment of 29,000 teachers, 20 degree colleges, three ITIs, free WiFi, women security, 900 primary health centres, 20,000 beds in hospitals and to make adhoc employees permanent. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been in power for the past two and half years but could not complete a single promise, the BJP president said.

He used government money for the AAP’s political gains in Punjab, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Goa and other states.
