COLUMN BJP’s Naye Chehre in MCD Polls A Bold Experiment

He also said that not a single youth Congress leader found any place in the selection committee, manifesto committee or the campaign committee. He was also suspended from the party later.

In two separate functions held at the BJP office here on Tuesday, around 200 Congress office-bearers and workers joined the Bharatiya Janata Party in the presence of BJP National Vice-President Vinay Sahasrabuddhe, and MPs Maheish Girri and Meenakshi Lekhi.

Jaising said the EVMs compatible with VVPATs were used in Uttar Pradesh and Goa polls and the Election Commission of India has 13,000, apart from additional 3,000, second-generation EVMs with them.

"We will introduce the MCD Right of Citizen to time bound delivery of services charter on the lines of the time bound delivery of services law enacted by the Delhi government in 2011 within thirty days of assuming office", state unit Ajay Maken tolf reporters. "Where ever my friends are fighting, I will support them". Many leaders are feeling suffocated in the party.

Amit Malik too pointed fingers at the Congress leadership for his exit. "Let us see when do others follow suit", Lovely said.

"After Arvinder Singh Lovely's joining, I am getting loads of calls from Congress leaders".

He also appreciated the BJP's decision to field fresh faces in the election.

While the issues in MCD polls remain the same, the three parties have ideated completely different approaches in dealing with the problems of sanitation, finances and civic infrastructure. In September 2015, a few months before the Assam Assembly election, Himanta Biswa Sarma joined the BJP following a tug-of-war with then chief minister Tarun Gogoi over the top post.

Dikshit had termed the development as "betrayal" by Lovely.

Vinay Sahasrabuddhe, Member of Parliament and vice president of the Election Committee, said the BJP is a large family where all get opportunity to serve society and the nation and the members work for social welfare and not for party posts.
