New Delhi: The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Monday targeted the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) after Delhi Assembly polls, in the latest edition of its mouthpiece 'Organiser'.
The article stated that the RSS stated that the BJP's decision to project 'parachute CM' Kiran Bedi at the last moment conveyed a wrong message to the people.
It further stated that the decision to project Bedi as the party's chief ministerial candidate against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal was a “very late move” and gave out the message that despite having senior leaders in the national capital, the party has already accepted defeat.
The article also pointed out that during Lok Sabha polls, Modi had declared that he had three 'Vijays' in Delhi - Vijay Goel, Vijendra Gupta and Vijay Kumar Malhotra.
It further said that three out of four senior BJP leaders, who also have a following in the national capital, were upset at being upstaged.
The BJP faced a rout in the Delhi polls after it managed to win only three seats while AAP swept 67 out of 70 seats. Congress failed to win even a single seat.
