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.
