In a setback to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on March 27, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislator from Bawana Ved Prakash formally joined the BJP days ahead of the civic polls in the presence of Delhi BJP President Manoj Tiwari.
Tweeting Prakash’s photograph of joining the BJP and his resignation letter from the AAP, Tiwari said the popularity of BJP has frustrated the opposition parties.
Delhi BJP spokesperson Tajinder Pal S Bagga speaking of the reasons why Prakash joined the BJP, said he wanted to work under the ‘saintly’ Narendra Modi’s leadership and hence was joining BJP.
“My joining the BJP has a lot to do with the change taking place in the country. The change has thrown up PM Narendra Modi and Yogi Adityanath in Uttar Pradesh. I want to be a part of that change too,” said Prakash.
He said that he did not want any post in the BJP but only wanted to be with it. Apart from him, 30 more AAP legislators “sick” of the party leadership.
Later, speaking to media persons, he said that he would give his resignation letter to the Assembly Speaker. “It is unfortunate that the Delhi CM and his deputy have done nothing in the past two years,” said Prakash
