Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has again slammed Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) calling it a “political startup” that has “failed to deliver”. The comments come as Kejriwal and senior AAP leaders continue a massive campaign in Gujarat, which has been ruled by the BJP for more than two decades.
“AAP is a failed political startup,” Sarma said. “Even after 10 years they have not developed to become MSME (Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises). For the last 10 years, they have been trying to sell the same product without any proof of delivery, said the BJP leader. . The Assam Chief Minister made the remarks while addressing the Hindustan Times Summit on Saturday. “They are still the old prisoners.”
The rift between BJP and AAP has been increasing day by day during the polling season.
While in Gujarat, Arvind Kejriwal’s party aims to present itself as the main challenger to the ruling party, Delhi is also set to see a heated battle in the civic polls that will take place next month. AAP also campaigned heavily in Himachal Pradesh where assembly elections were held in only one phase on Saturday. Education and health care and solving other social issues have been among the AAP’s polling appointments in recent years. However, the BJP accused the party of not being able to fulfill its promises.
On the other hand, in HTLS 2022, Himanta Sarma also hit out at the Congress, his former party, accusing him of not having any democracy. He went on to say that many who voted for Shashi Tharoor – who lost the Congress presidential election to Mallikarjun Kharge last month – would join the BJP soon. This statement, however, was greatly reacted to by the leaders of the former party.
