BJP leader Nitin Gadkari on Saturday alleged a deal was brokered between Aam Aadmi Party and Congress by a reputed industrialist in a hotel to “stop BJP at any cost” from coming to power in Delhi.

Training his guns at AAP which formed the government in Delhi,Gadkari also termed it as a “right wing Maoist party” which wants to “destroy” the democratic system.

Addressing a workers meeting,Gadkari said he was told by a reputed industrialist of the country how a deal was brokered at a hotel in Delhi.

“One of the big industrialists of our country helped make a deal between Arvind Kejriwal and some senior Congress leaders at a big hotel in Delhi. I was personally told about what talks had transpired in that hotel and what all was eaten by the same person”

“The person who was working as the mediator told me that the policy being made is that BJP has to be stopped at any cost,” Gadkari claimed.

Attacking Congress,Gadkari said the former is not dreaming of making a government at the Centre anymore and said “since they (Congress) know they are finished,they will have to stop BJP at any cost”.

“Congress is now dreaming that since we are finished,we will not allow the BJP to form government and also not let Narendra Modi become the Prime Minister. Understanding this,they (Congress) are making their policies accordingly,” Gadkari said.

Gadkari’s remarks came hours after Arvind Kejriwal,the anti-corruption campaigner,took oath as chief minister. Gadkari charged AAP levels false allegations and that all parties and politicians are corrupt.”Then,why do they give tickets to those who do not get tickets from Congress or BJP?…why do they go to those workers’ home..In politics,politicians do not fall from the sky but come out of the society…” he said.

“This is also a right wing Maoist party..it wants to destroy our democratic system..everybody else is corrupt,only they are good. Their truth will also come out in the coming days..” he said.
