AAP intensifes demand on social media for polls in Delhi

New Delhi: With December coming to an end and no election dates still announced, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has intensified the demand on social media to conduct fresh polls in Delhi.
"There is some unconfirmed news going on that election dates could be postponed to April," party spokesperson Atishi Marlena said.
AAP sources said the party is apprehensive that the poll dates may be pushed to April if the election results in Jammu and Kashmir and Jharkhand are not favourable to BJP. It is also expecting the election will be held in February this year, which mark one year of President's rule in Delhi.
"By-polls were to be conducted in the last week of November, but the assembly itself was dissolved last month. More than a month has passed, elections dates have not been announced," a party source said.
"We feel that the BJP may play tricks and get the election delayed under some pretext or the other. We want to initiate the debate to declare the poll dates at the earliest," a party source said.
"Are Delhi elections being pushed to April? (Why is) BJP so scared?" Kejriwal had yesterday tweeted.
The AAP has been demanding fresh polls ever since it quit the government in Februray last year, following which President's rule was imposed in the national capital.
