He said that the 'Nukkad Natak written by him will expose how Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and other AAP leaders, who claimed to be disciples of anti-graft leader Anna Hazare, went on to indulge in corruption.
Meanwhile, the senior AAP leader Manish Sisodia said the people of Delhi would give a "befitting response" to the BJP, which had "failed" to perform its primary responsibility during its 15-year tenure in charge of the civic body.
The BJP has been in power in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) - trifurcated in 2012 into north, south and east corporations and then unified this year - for three straight terms. Elections to the 250-ward MCD is scheduled for December 4 while the counting of votes will take place on December 7.
