Hitting out at the BJP, Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal on Friday advised people of Delhi not to vote for the saffron party in the MCD elections. Holding the BJP responsible for the widespread dengue and chikungunya in the national capital, Kejriwal told voters, “if your children get dengue or chikungunya, then you yourself will be responsible for it, because you voted for a party that spreads mosquitoes that breed dengue or chikungunya.”

“If someone in your home falls ill then you are responsible because you voted for the party which is synonymous to chikhungunya, malaria, dengue and garbage,” he added.

Making a fervent appeal to vote for an “honest Aam Aadmi Party”, the Chief Minister said his party will clean Delhi in a year and eradicate vector-borne diseases in the next three years. He said that the Congress is “dead” in Delhi and at the national level, and voting for them would mean “wasting your vote.”

Kejriwal also alleged that with just two days left for the MCD polls, the BJP and the Congress are resorting to the “cheap politics” by engineering the water and power shortages. “The BJP and the Congress are stealing oil from the power transformers and ensuring that there is power shortage. They are doing it deliberately and resorting to cheap politics by disrupting water and power supply,” he alleged.

“Your fight is with me, so do not harm the people of Delhi,” he said, adding that such acts will continue till Sunday, the polling day.

Kejriwal also accused the BJP of trying to mask its “misdeeds” by asking people to vote for the party in the name of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

                Corrupt AAP will be decimated in MCD polls. Crooked kejrilal has accelted defeat. Every survey makes it clear. BJP will get more than 200 seats & khujliwaal will blame EVMs. We will punish Kejri on 23rd.

                              Yes vote for AAP, the very garbage this stupid person called Kejriwal is referring. Yes, worry about dengue but do not lose sight of the biggest disease on earth called AAP. The only cure is not to vote for the s representing AAP. AAP will not clear the mess in 1 year, but you have to add another 100 years before 1 so that they can blame everyone in India for the mess and come for cleaning. S.

                              He is hundred percent right. BJP goons in New Delhi can go upto any extent. MCD has been at odds with elected gov't. Even 4 deptt under elected gov't Electricity, Water, Education & Health have been rendered ineffective by MCD ruled by BJP.

                                  If people vote for AAP they would be risking their own lives so no question of children so better think before you press that button. We have seen his rule except blaming others nothing he did with all the majority. Jaihind

                                    There are lots of naive people in this country who would vote for the corrupt party of Chikungunya and Dengue.

                                            Rhetorical reply but factually hollow. Firstly, Arvind's government is the most clean government in India. Secondly, you have to clean the dust of your mind as that is the dirt which you are looking at. Thirdly, factually it is well known that BJP ruled MCD causes dengue and chikungunya by it's inaction. You probably would realise only when someone from your family would fall victim of these diseases. Then I do not think that Modi would help you.
