After it became clear that the saffron party was winning the MCD polls quite comfortably, Union Minister and senior BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu today said that the Centre, state government and all municipalities should work together, at press conference. The minister observed that the country wants to move on the path of development under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and welcomed everyone to participate in the movement to create a better India. The Union minister, while congratulating the party’s Delhi unit for its third successive win in civic polls, also expressed hope that all concerned will work jointly for the development of the national capital.
“We want to work together with the AAP Government in Delhi. It is for them to decide on whether they want to work with us or not”, he added.
Earlier in the day, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister and senior AAP leader Manish Sisodia had blamed EVM tampering for the rout of his party in MCD polls. He had earlier taken to Twitter to express his disbelief. Criticising the BJP, the deputy CM wrote: “After losing elections in 2009, BJP did research on EVM tampering for the next 5 years and gained expertise and today it is winning elections due to the same.”

“Not just research, but many prominent leaders of BJP including BGL Narsimha Rao and LK Advani have also written books on EVM and even went to Supreme Court for EVM tampering issues.”
He further said, “EVM tampering is a bitter truth of country’s democracy that can be criticised in the first place. However, just due to the fear of criticism we cannot stop speaking the truth.”
