As it became clear that AAP is on its way back to power, months of animosity gave way to courtesy. BJP leaders who fought a high decibel, shrill campaign against AAP were seen congratulating Arvind Kejriwal and his associates.
BJP’s East Delhi MP Gautam Gambhir tweeted: “Congratulations to @ArvindKejriwal on returning as the Chief Minister of Delhi and all the winning MLAs. I want to assure him that development of Delhi and welfare of citizens will be the top priority for everyone.”
Soon BJP’s Hari Nagar candidate Tajinder Bagga followed suit. He extended his wish by saying: “Hearty congratulations to Arvind Kejriwal and all the workers of Aam Aadmi Party.” Earlier he quoted a verse from Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s poetry of hope that he had penned when BJP was down and out.
However, Manoj Tiwari the Delhi president of AAP and Parvesh Sahib Singh, whose controversial statements brought EC censure, has not done the same. Neither has Anurag Thakur whose ‘gaddar’ comment created a row.
