Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday attacked the BJP over postponing the municipal elections.
He said that “we will quit politics if BJP gets these polls conducted timely and wins them.”
His remarks come after the Union Cabinet on Tuesday approved a bill to unify the three civic bodies – North, East and South – in Delhi.
“We (the AAP) will leave politics if BJP gets the MCD polls held (timely) and wins them,” Mr Kejriwal said outside the Delhi Assembly.
He also added, “The BJP says it is the biggest political party in the world but it got scared by a small party and a small election. I dare the BJP for timely MCD polls.”
Kejriwal on Twitter said that deferring the elections is an “insult to martyrs”.
“Today they are postponing the Delhi Municipal Corporation elections due to fear of defeat, tomorrow they will postpone the elections of the states and the country,” Mr Kejriwal further added.
