BJP’s MLA Manjinder S. Sirsa’s attemt to humiliate Delhi’s CM Arvind Kejriwal proved to be a big disaster. He targeted Kejriwal and became a target of trolls himself.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Manjinder S Sirsa conducted a poll on Twitter over what people felt about Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, but the move backfired when most of the participants voted in favour of the AAP supremo.
Taking a jibe at Manjinder Sirsa, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj on Wednesday said it was a good thing that the BJP MLA conducted the poll as it showed that even the supporters of the saffron party wanted to vote for the AAP in next year’s Delhi Assembly election.
The Move Backfired
Manjinder Sirsa, in the Twitter poll, gave options for or against Arvind Kejriwal. As many as 70 per cent favoured the Delhi chief minister in his survey, while 30 per cent voted against him.
Manjinder Sirsa, however, claimed that the poll was rigged by AAP volunteers.
“Congratulations to AAP IT cell for voting in favour of Arvind Kejriwal. If the ground reality was same then the AAP would have won in the Lok Sabha polls,” he said in a tweet on Wednesday.
In the recent Lok Sabha elections, AAP faced worst defeat. The party had contested on more than 40 seats across the country, ou of which it won only one seat. All seven candidates had to face defeat in Delhi
Kejriwal cites two major reasons for Lok Sabha defeat
AAM Aadmi Party national convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday (29 May 2019) listed two reasons for his party’s defeat in all seven Lok Sabha seats of the Capital, while admitting that his party failed to explain to the people reasons to vote for its candidates.
“Post-election, ground analysis has revealed two major reasons. First, the atmosphere that prevailed in the country rubbed off on Delhi as well. Second, people saw this ‘big election’ as between Modi and Rahul and voted accordingly,” Kejriwal said in an open letter to volunteers, applauding them for putting all their energies into the campaign, one of the best in the country.
On the brighter side, Kejriwal said in the letter, people of Delhi would vote AAP back to power in the upcoming Delhi Assembly elections 2020.
The AAP had made a stunning foray into the national politics. In 2014, the party ended up second on all seats in Delhi. They won four Lok Sabha seats in Punjab. In the 2015 assembly polls, the party won 67 out of the 70 seats.
