The Delhi Congress has upped its ante against the BJP, saying it was making efforts to form a government in Delhi and criticised the party for actively indulging in the “saffronisation of Raj Niwas”.

Party members said they would “wage a do-or-die battle” against the BJP.

Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) president Arvinder Singh Lovely said the manner in which the Lieutenant-Governor was “trying to aid the BJP to form a government in Delhi” was unconstitutional. He also said this was being done at the “behest of the Union Home Minister”.

DPCC chief spokesperson Mukesh Sharma said the party was going to increase the intensity and frequency of their rallies against the BJP, beginning with an “aakrosh rally” on Sunday at East Delhi’s Ghonda constituency.

“The manner in which the BJP, despite not having a clear majority, is making efforts to form the government in Delhi is against democratic principles. The BJP had announced on December 12 that it would not form the government in an unconstitutional manner. What legal formula has it now found to do so?” Sharma said.
