Not answerable to Kejriwal, says BJP
Contradicting Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal, the BJP on Saturday said it has neither offered nor sought his support and wondered why he was writing letters asking questions from it.
New Delhi: Contradicting Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal, the BJP on Saturday said it has neither offered nor sought his support and wondered why he was writing letters asking questions from it.
"This is ridiculous, BJP has neither sought nor offered support to AAP then how come Kejriwal is writing letter and questioning us," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said in a tweet.
His remarks came after Kejriwal, earlier in the day, set new conditions for Congress and BJP before it can decide on forming a government, claiming that both the parties have offered support to him for forming government.
Kejriwal also gave Delhi LG Najeeb Jung, the copies of the letters he had written to Congress President Sonia Gandhi and BJP President Rajnath Singh seeking their views on a list of 18 issues that included ending VIP culture in the capital, audit of electricity companies and removal of MLA local funds scheme.
In a surprise move, Congress had last night extended unconditional support of its eight MLAs to AAP for forming the next government.
While the single largest party BJP with 31 MLAs in Delhi assembly elections has declined to from the government, the second biggest party AAP with 28 seats has been saying that it would not take from or give support to Congress and BJP in government formation.
