BJP today claimed the Aam Aadmi Party is backed by foreign powers which aim to destabilise the country and its chief Arvind Kejriwal would lose his deposit in Varanasi Lok Sabha constituency, where he is pitted against Narendra Modi.

In a vituperative attack on Kejriwal, Delhi BJP President Harsh Vardhan said politics is not about "one-trick ponies" and those "who run-away from challenges" besides terming AAP an "apparition" which has the backing of foreign powers.

In a statement issued here, Vardhan said he had only "brotherly" advice for the former Delhi Chief Minister asking him to "go home and run that NGO of yours". He also asked Kejriwal to "desist from cheating the people with false promises".

Calling the former Delhi Chief Minister a 'fascist character', Vardhan said that in Delhi, Kejriwal had allowed the discredited Congress to rule via the back door.

"Kejriwal had also promised to introduce 50 per cent cuts in electricity bill. But nothing like that happened," he said.
