Is making BJP win polls the main motive of Arvind Kejriwal? Congress’ Ajay Maken shares ‘pattern’ to prove this point

Ahead of Gujarat Assembly elections, Ajay Maken, Delhi state Congress president, on Friday asked whether the main motive of Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal is to make BJP win elections.

Ahead of Gujarat Assembly elections, Ajay Maken, Delhi state Congress president, on Friday asked whether the main motive of Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal is to make BJP win elections. In a blog post, Maken shared a “pattern” to drive home his claim. “Did you notice a pattern in Kejriwal selecting the States from where AAP fields its candidates for the State Assembly elections?,” Maken asked readers of his blog.

Maken’s question on Kejriwal’s intentions comes after the AAP decided to field only 50 candidates in the upcoming Gujarat Assembly elections and not to contest the Himachal Pradesh polls. AAP reportedly took this decision because of the limited resources it has for contesting polls.

However, Maken wrote the following nine points to allege there is a “pattern” in Kejriwal’s decisions that helps BJP win polls. These are:

  1. Like Owaisi’s MIM, they contest only to help the BJP;
  2. Post 2013 Delhi elections, they have only selected the States to contest the elections where BJP is in power;
  3. This year alone, the Aam Aadmi Party decided to contest from Punjab and Goa. Both the states had either BJP or it’s supported Government.
  4. However they decided not to contest in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Manipur. None of these three states had BJP government. In 2014 Assembly elections, Kejriwal decided not to contest in his home state Haryana!
  5. Kejriwal Party contests only in such states, which have the BJP government so that they can cut into anti-incumbency votes to help the BJP.
  6. Also, very interesting to note here is that in Goa, they deliberately announced a Christian as the chief minister candidate. Likewise in Punjab, they announced that the Deputy Chief Minister will be from a Dalit community. Christians and the Dalits in Goa and Punjab have traditionally been the Congress supporters.
  7. In Goa, the BJP got 32.5% votes and the Congress party got 28.4% votes. The difference between the BJP and the Congress was just 4.1% votes. The AAP Party got just 6.3% votes – it was because of the Aam Aadmi Party that the BJP won in Goa.
  8. Now again, the AAP Party is contesting in Gujarat but not in Himachal! Is it a mere co-incidence?
  9. It’s just a matter of time that everyone will realise how Kejriwal along with Nitish, Owaisi, Anna, Baba Ramdev, Kiran Bedi etc were an RSS plant in the political system to help the BJP. I feel sorry for many of their genuine supporters.

AAP has not yet reacted to the claim made by Maken.

The date of elections in Gujarat has not yet been announced by the Election Commission. Assembly elections in Himachal Pradesh will be held on November 9.

    Having been routed in Delhi Ajay Maken is desperate to find some relevance. BJP says AAP is B team of Congress. Now congress is saying AAP is an RSS implant. I will request some sensible politics from both BJP and Congress. AAP is a party with small financial resources. Unlike these conventional parties they are not using their power in Delhi to extract money from contractors and suppliers. Having burnt their fingers in the last parliament elections by spreading their resources very thin they are trying to move gradually choosing states where they have some presence. Mr Maken is free to draw his own conclusions.

        MakanJi Aapke jaise shubh tak agar congress mai hoto kisi ko bhi BJP ko jeet dilwane mai mehnat nahi karni padegi. I am surprised what has happened to standard of congress that they are holding such people in party. Really congress still have to see its worse in coming days if they still bat with such mind set people.

            As per Maken, there should be only these two BAD old parties. No good party shoul enter India such that these two can continue their governance to spoil this country. Pathetic Indians.

              Congress understands and imputed such tactics because they were doing exactly the same things, when they could.

                The law abiding businessmen in Delhi/ NCR who had procured and stocked crackers fir Deepawali have suffered huge losses. And these crackers have no alternative use. Cannot be stored for next Deepawali. Stored may burst and cause fire

                  So as per this logic, no one should fight elections in the states ruled by BJP except congress.

                      Mr Ajay Maken, your party led by Mother Son is sinking and why do you blame MR. Kejriwal for putting his candidates?What happened in UP elections in spite of forming anti BJP Ghatabandan?

                                Dear Gujaratis and North Indians, I am not sure why would any Gujarati to be so over anxious to vote for congress. They are not going to make a Gujarati as PM. They may help some other Gujarati to become CM. You already have a Gujarati as CM. The most important thing is a person who is proud of his Gujarat roots is a PM. How many cabinet portfolios were given to Gujaratis during UPA govt? How many IT companies invested in Gujarat during UPA govgt? If you guys want to see any development in your region then you should support BJP. If you guys are happy to migrate to south and work for the welfare of south Indians and to help them build real estate then you can vote for any party. Think about it. I want even north Indians to think about it.
