With AAP and Congress stepping up attack on Kiran Bedi and V K Singh, BJP today said they are doing so due to “lack” of leadership in both the parties and questioned them for not speaking out earlier.
While AAP alleged that both Bedi and Singh were “moles” of BJP in India Against Corruption and that they were “soft” on BJP, Congress said Bedi had been selectively targeting Congress during the anti-graft movement which was acting as “B-team” of BJP.
“A new game has begun in Delhi. This is the mole-mole game. But this is a hole in the confidence of AAP and Congress. A hole which exposes their depression, frustration and their confusion ever since the declaration of Kiran Bedi as BJP’s CM face.
“Both are making statements which are irrelevant, which people of Delhi are not going to buy. BJP does not want to play the agent-agent, the mole-mole game. We want to play the game of stable governance in Delhi,” BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra told reporters.
He said that due to the “confusion and frustration” in Congress, senior party leaders were ready to quit it due to the “rudderless” leadership provided by Rahul Gandhi whom he described as a “non-entity” who failed to emerge as a leader.
Making a poser to Congress, he said if anti-graft movement had been propped up by RSS and BJP as stated by it, then why BJP did not extend support to the AAP government in Delhi and how Congress explains its leader Shiela Dikshit supporting AAP again in Delhi by stating that her party’s ideology is similar to it.
“Who is a bigger leader – Ajay Maken or Shiela Dikshit, Anand Sharma or Shiela who has been a Congress chief minister for 15 years in Delhi? Why is there contradiction and dichotomy in statements of both their leaders? Congress has to explain this,” Patra said, questioning further if Congress has gone soft on RSS, BJP ideology.
Questioning AAP, Patra said “where is the bag of evidence that they collected against Shiela Dikshit and why you did not expose her. Does that not mean there there is a clandestine agreement between Congress and AAP?”
He hit out at AAP for “shifting” the goal-post by attacking the UPA government over corruption but later sought to derail Narendra Modi’s victory in Lok Sabha polls by lending a helping hand to Rahul Gandhi and Congress.
