The newly-appointed Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesman Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga has said that Arvind Kejriwal stands exposed with most of his promises are not fulfilled. He said that the recent poll debacles of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) have proved that people have lost faith in Kejriwal. Bagga, who enjoys a significant following on Twitter, assertively said that Delhi would be Kejriwal-mukt and MCD elections would be the beginning of the same. Bagga said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s fight against corruption has tremendous sbacking from the common man. In an interview with newsroompost.com, Bagga spoke on several key issues ranging from MCD elections, AAP government’s performance, leadership of PM Modi and BJP national president Amit Shah to Yogi Adityanath.
Newsroompost: What are the agenda and issues for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in upcoming Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) elections?
Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga: The Arvind Kejriwal government came to power over two years ago and has so far been unable to fulfill any of its promises. It promises 20 colleges, 500 schools, WiFi, commandos for security of women, and what not. But none of them was fulfilled by the Kejriwal government despite over two years in office now. So in the MCD polls, the BJP will go to the people apprising them of how the Kejriwal government cheated them. Secondly, the BJP will go to the people with the work it has done in the MCD.
Newsroompost: Do you want to say that there will be anti-incumbency factor against the Kejriwal government in MCD elections?
Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga: See what has happened is that we (BJP) have won all the elections which took place over the last eight months. People saw how good decisions were taken by the Modi government. Demonetisation may have caused some sort of inconvenience, but people realised that the intentions of PM Modi in his fight against corruption are good. Entire opposition is united against PM’s anti-corruption move like demonetisation. People have been observing this. As a result, people ensured BJP victory in all the elections that happened over the last eight months, be it Chandigarh or Faridabad civic polls, or four state elections. In sharp contrast to this, Kejriwal, who claimed to win 100 seats, could get only 22 seats in Punjab. AAP candidates have their deposits forfeited in 39 seats in Goa. This is the result of the party which got 67 out of 70 seats in Delhi. It means people have seen through the design of Kejriwal and have given the message that they are not going to fall prey to falsehood of Kejriwal. Arvind Kejriwal won the elections by means of false promises. But now public is not going to fall into his trap again. Kejriwal has been exposed now. He always indulges in blame game. He does not talk about governance but keeps blaming one or the other. We (BJP) will come back to power by two thirds in Delhi. Like BJP is making India Congress-mukt, on the same line we will make Delhi Kejriwal-mukt.
