Delhi BJP expels its 21 members including four councillors
"AAP will solve the dog and monkey menace in Delhi within the existing legal and statutory framework, if it come to power in the municipal corporations", Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said in its manifesto released on Wednesday. Following those campaigns, Bharatiya Janata Party expelled candidate Savita Khatri, who was fighting MCD polls from Narela.
BJP President Amit Shah presents the party membership slip to former DPCC President Arvinder Singh Lovely as he joins BJP. "I waited for two years and I could not have been more patient", he said. It also promised to regularise the temporary sanitation workers, digitalisation of citizen services, putting pressure on the Delhi government for regularisation of unauthorised colonies.
However, the media campaign skirts all these issues and pits chief minister Kejriwal as the main villain in the game of political one-upmanship.

This comes days after Kejriwal demanded a thorough verification of paper trails and he claimed that there were manipulated during the recently concluded Punjab assembly elections. The Delhi unit of the BJP held a gathering to welcome Lovely into the party, with BJP national vice-president and Delhi Pradesh in-charge Shyam Jaju and MP Maheish Girri in attendance. "There are many schemes including Jan Dhan Yojana, PM housing scheme, Mudra Loan and others where lakhs of people have been benefitted in the country", said a Delhi BJP leader. A day after joining the BJP, Lovely also hit out at his one-time mentor and former CM Sheila Dikshit, dubbing her as a burden on the Congress.
While the BJP, fresh from its win in the Rajouri Garden bypoll, is seeking to retain its turf, the Congress, which finished second, is hoping for a resurgence.
