BJP all set for another poll bout, says Goel

Claims BJP will get more seats if elections held again

Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party president Vijay Goel on Tuesday said the party is ready for another round of Assembly polls if the Aam Aadmi Party refuses to form the government.

He said the AAP appeared to be running away from government formation due to the fear of getting exposed to the promises made to voters. 

“The BJP did not have the required numbers so we could not form the government,” said Goel. 

“But the Congress had given unconditional support to the AAP which now has the numbers,” he said.

In a statement, Goel said a meeting of the Election Core Group for Delhi was held at state BJP headquarters to review the situation and discuss the strategy.

The meeting was attended among others by Delhi election in-charge Nitin Gadkari and co-incharge Navjot Singh Siddhu. 

Gadkari said the BJP had emerged as the single largest party and the first choice of the people of Delhi. 

The party cadres need to work even harder now to fulfil the aspirations of the Delhiites, the statement said.
He said if another election was forced upon Delhi, the BJP will emerge much stronger with a clear majority, it said. 

Goel said: “The party has decided to go back to the people through a three-pronged strategy: door-to-door campaign, public meetings and social media campaign.”

“The BJP cadres would communicate to the people how the AAP’s non-serious approach has virtually forced another election upon Delhiites and how the BJP has been fighting against the misrule of the Congress for the last 15 years, and hence it is the most feasible and viable alternative,” said Goel. 

“The BJP cadres and leaders will organise victory rallies in Assembly constituencies where it won and hold ‘thanks giving’ rallies on seats where it lost,”  he added.
