Delhi BJP chief urges Anna Hazare to join party's movement against AAP govt

Anna Hazare

Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Adesh Gupta on Monday wrote a letter to social activist Anna Hazare urging him to join his party's "mass movement" against the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government led by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

In the letter, the BJP leader alleged that AAP has demolished all parameters of "political purity" and further accused it of "planning" the northeast Delhi violence in February, which had left at least 53 people dead and around 200 injured.

"The Aam Aadmi Party, which came to the government in the name of clean and fair politics, has demolished all the parameters of political purity. The people of Delhi have suffered the communal riots planned by the AAP," the letter stated.

"Aam Aadmi Party is the new name of social, political and economic corruption and we are constantly fighting against them. Therefore, we request Anna Hazare to come to Delhi and raise voice against corruption and support us in the movement. The voice of Anna Hazare will have to be raised again for the relief of the youth and for people of Delhi who feel betrayed by the Kejriwal government," it added.
