AAP, BJP fight over dele­tion of Ba­nia votes

Khaleej Times - - INDIA - —PTI

new delhi — The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) locked horns over al­leged mass dele­tion of Ba­nia votes in Delhi, with Chief Min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal say­ing the traders com­mu­nity would not vote for rul­ing party at the Cen­tre.

With the AAP al­leg­ing dele­tion of 400,000 Ba­nia votes in Delhi, Union min­is­ter Vi­jay Goel tweeted, say­ing AAP was fool­ing them.

“The Ba­nias in Delhi are an­gry that Arvind Ke­jri­wal and his party con­sid­ers them as fools. If the Vaishya com­mu­nity will be­lieve this that the BJP is sin­gling them out and get­ting their votes deleted, when re­al­ity is that two Vaishya lead­ers from Delhi are min­is­ters in the Cen­tral gov­ern­ment,” Goel tweeted.

Ke­jri­wal al­leged that the BJP got deleted four lakh out of 800,000 Ba­nia votes in Delhi.

“The wrong poli­cies of the BJP like note­bandi and GST dev­as­tated busi­ness of traders. Ba­nias are not vot­ing for the BJP. So you will get their votes deleted. Will you win like this?” Ke­jri­wal tweeted in re­ply to Goel. Many other AAP lead­ers in­clud­ing party MP San­jay Singh and spokesper­son Sau­rabh Bhard­waj also at­tacked Goel over his tweet.
