BJPBharatiya Janata Party suspects behind-the-scenes dealings between Congress and Arvind Kejriwal's AAP may deprive it of govt formation in Delhi.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today alleged that Congress has exposed its "hidden malicious inclination" to check the stormy march of the party by contemplating to join hands with Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Admi Party (AAP), in the wake of BJP's lead in the Delhi Assembly poll results.

Bharatiya Janata Party's national general secretary Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi alleged this quoting Congress' general secretary Shakeel Ahmad's statement broadcast this morning by All India Radio that all the eight legislators of Congress in Delhi have expressed their willingness to support the proposed government formed by the AAP.

Naqvi also termed the AAP, a "by-product" of Congress.

"This is an arrogant attitude of the Congress and blunder of democracy," he commented, adding "AAP's leader terming the proposed alignment was wonder of the world, and was not less than the greatest blunder planned to ruin the democracy".

He said that Congress was worried and AAP too was worried in equal quantum observing 30 per cent more electoral support to Bharatiya Janata Party in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan as compared to 2008 elections and failure of combined efforts of mother, son and daughter (Sonia Gandhi, Rahul and Priyanka) to shatter Bharatiya Janata Party's victory in Chhattisgarh.

"Hence both now talk of joining hands to hinder Bharatiya Janata Party's progress in rest of the country during 2014 elections (Lok Sabha polls)," Naqvi said.

The Bharatiya Janata Party leader further alleged that "Kejriwal has become a mere contractor appointed by multinational company who intends to become like a speed-breaker to obstruct the movement of Bharatiya Janata Party, but the people of the country were determined to foil their nefarious designs".

Naqvi said that a number of revolting signals emerging from within the Congress and its allies were very clearly indicating its near total downfall either much before the ensuing general elections or soon after the state electoral drubbing.

He congratulated Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar, Congress senior leader Mani Shankar Aiyar and others for their views in a post-poll scenario.
