The Aam Aadmi party has alleged that the BJP violated the rules in appointing the councilor of the municipal corporation. Instead of appointing reputable people in a particular field, it has appointed its own party employees as aldermen. Aam Aadmi Party leader Saurabh Bhardwaj claims that BJP is seeking to secure the post of zonal chairman and standing committee members.
The BJP has reacted strongly to this claim by the Aam Aadmi party. Senior BJP leader Praveen Shankar Kapoor has said that before making this claim, the Aam Aadmi party should remember the profile of the councilor appointed by it in the past. He said the Aam Aadmi party, agitated over the nomination of councilor, has now scored a self-goal. Under the constitutional provisions in 2017, the government of Delhi had the right to appoint ten aldermen each in the three municipal corporations of the time and then 30 workers from Aam Aadmi party were appointed as aldermen. Evidence of each of them’s association with the Aam Aadmi party can be found on their social media accounts.
He said that the Aam Aadmi Party had not only appointed its workers but also committed a major constitutional scam by nominating two of its party spokespersons, Ghanendra Bhardwaj and Captain Shalini, who live in the South Delhi Corporation area, for the East -Delhi Municipal Corporation. There was a great controversy over this, but the Kejriwal government did not accept the mistake and did not retract their names.
Also, according to BJP leader, councilor Haji Yunus, who was appointed in East Delhi in 2017, became MLA in 2020 and councilor Atul Gupta contested the election of MLA from Vishwas Nagar on Aam Aadmi Party ticket, lost but remained as councilor.
The BJP spokesman has said that instead of raising accusations, the Aam Aadmi party should participate in the House proceedings and Delhi should get its mayor so that development work can proceed immediately.
