All good people should join hands to take on BJP: Kejriwal

Kejriwal calls on Pinarayi in Delhi

The high-octane Delhi Municipal Corporation elections on Sunday will witness a triangular contest, whose implications will go much beyond the national capital's borders.

"A sizeable section among traditional BJP voters were showing a shift towards the AAP following our house tax waiver announcement", he said.

The run-p to the polls have also been dominated by allegations of tampered EVMs, made by Kejriwal, a charge rejected by the Election Commission.

A senior BJP leader said the decision to cancel the meeting was taken after a meeting with senior leaders who opined that the top leaders of BJP should stay away from campaigning. "Besides, for the past ten years, the BJP has been ruling Delhi's municipal corporations but failed to deliver. the BJP could not clean Delhi, nor end the spectres of mosquitoes, dengue and chikungunya", the Delhi Chief Minister said. They will be electing 272 councillors of Delhi. It had scored a stunning victory in the 2015 Delhi assembly polls by winning 67 of 70 seats.

Khetan said these figures had emerged after a professional agency interviewed around 31,000 voters in Delhi on who they planned to vote for in the civic polls.

Delhi Congress president Ajay Maken had also raised the issue and wrote to Kejriwal as well as the state election commission seeking the use of paper ballots. The AAP boom in Delhi seemed a low during Rajouri Garden polls where AAP candidate had to lose its security deposit.

The Swaraj India leader also said, "If you get majority in the three MCDs (that is, 137 seats only), I will admit that my understanding is wrong and that people of Delhi don't consider you a betrayer".

In the run up to the Delhi civic polls which are to be held on Sunday, the leaders of various political parties, including the Congress, the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Aam Aadmi Party have been campaigning in a bid to garner votes.
