Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday stirred a controversy by asking voters to take money from both the Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party but vote for AAP in the Delhi Assembly elections.
While addressing people in Uttam Nagar constituency, Kejriwal said, “I appeal to the people of Delhi to accept bribes from Congress and BJP. The money they will pay you for votes is money they have stolen from us. Take bribes from the Congress and BJP, but vote for AAP.”
Kejriwal’s statement highlighted the use of money power in the elections to garner votes.
Earlier, Kejriwal said he was ready to take on BJP’s Kiran Bedi if she is pitched as a chief ministerial candidate and was sure of getting a majority in the polls.
Kejriwal said, “We left public last time, we won’t this time. It’s not me but public doesn’t consider Kiran Bedi as my competitor. We will get 45-50 seats.”
Voting will be held in Delhi on February 7 and the results will be declared on February 10.
