New Delhi. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) councilor Monika Pant made a big allegation about the Aam Aadmi Party on Saturday. Monika alleges that a woman named Shikha Garg approached her and offered her a lucrative offer to support the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the Delhi mayoral election. BJP leader Harish Khurana said, “We are going to file a complaint with the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) at 4 pm.” You have not yet responded to this allegation.
On Friday, after joining two councilors of Congress, AAP got a success, due to which the total number of councilors increased to 136. The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) does not have an anti-defection law. AAP won 134 wards, while BJP won 104 wards in the recently concluded Delhi civic polls, ending BJP’s 15-year rule in the civic body.
Date announced soon
Meanwhile, an AAP functionary said that the party will decide on the probable for the mayoral post after Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena gives a date for convening the House. The MCD will contact Saxena and fix a date on which the municipal hall can be called so that councilors can take the oath and a mayor can be elected.
BJP said we will sit in opposition
In a related development, Delhi BJP chief Adesh Gupta said the MCD mayor would be from the AAP and the BJP would play the role of a “strong opposition”. The speculation about the saffron party claiming the post of mayor despite losing the municipal corporation has been put to an end.
