New Delhi: Welcoming the Centre's decision to dissolve the Delhi Assembly, BJP state chief Satish Upadhyay said that the party is ready for polls and that the party is committed to give good governance to the people of Delhi.
Upadhyay said the party will carry forward the momentum gained by the poll victories in Haryana and Delhi.
On the issue of the alleged leadership vacuum in the state unit, Upadhyay said, “No lack of leadership in Delhi,at the right time right decision will be taken,will fight polls under collective leadership.”
Stressing that he is not a CM candidate, he said, “There is no tussle over CM candidate, we will chose a leader through a democratic process.”
On the eight month delay in dissolution of the Assembly, the Delhi BJP chief said that he has always maintained that the party would take a decision based on Lt Governor Najeeb Jung's recommendations. And now that the LG has recommended the dissolution of the assembly, the Centre has decided to recommended fresh polls, he added.
Slamming the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Upadhyay said the Arvind Kejriwal-led party was adept in making baseless allegations. “The people of Delhi will give a befitting reply to those who indulge in politics of allegations,” he said.
“Consider the misfortune of the people of Delhi that they had a chief minister who sat on a dharna on Republic Day; climbed the wall of secretariat to talk to the people,” he said.
