New Delhi: Union Minister Nitin Gadkari on Monday said AAP is a "confused party of defused netas" as he asked the people of Delhi to vote for BJP saying that the city's pace of development will increase manifold under its rule.

Gadkari said the central government wants to make the national capital the most beautiful city of India as well as of the world and it was taking several steps in this regard.

"BJP, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Kiran Bedi, is the only party which can change the future (bhavashiya) of Delhi and end the problems of the people," he said here.

Attacking the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party, the minister said, "AAP leaders had to face defeat in Varanasi and now they have reached Delhi. AAP is a confused party of defused (sic) netas."

He claimed that BJP since coming to power at the Centre, has given top priority to Delhi's development.

Gadkari said that there were plans to clean Yamuna and that they also want to create water terminal on the river from Delhi to Agra to enable people to commute between the two cities through waterways in the next two years.

"Through water terminal, a new mode of transportation will come up," he said.

The Union Surface Transport Minister also said that that government was working on Delhi-Jaipur and Eastern Peripheral Expressways to decongest the Ring Road.

The work on Eastern Peripheral Expressway will begin in May this year, he said.
