In a dig at the Congress, Aam Aadmi Party National Convener Arvind Kejriwal on Monday, January 17, said that the Grand old Party is the hope for the Bharatiya Janata Party and not the people of Goa.
His comments came as a reaction to Congress leader P Chidambaram’s tweet on Monday, which said that AAP and the Trinamool Congress were only aiding in the division of anti-BJP votes, thus aiding the saffron party. He said that this had been “confirmed” by Arvind Kejriwal.
Chidambaram, who is the Congress’ senior election observer for the Goa Assembly polls, appealed to the voters of Goa to vote for a regime change and elect Congress.
Kejriwal said: “Stop crying sir. Goans will vote where they see hope.” “Cong is hope for BJP, not Goans.15 of ur 17 MLAs switched to BJP. Cong guarantee- every vote to Cong will be safely delivered to BJP. To vote BJP, route thro Cong for safe delivery,” he added.
With the Assembly polls approaching fast, the Congress and the AAP have been locked in a bitter battle, especially in Punjab.
