New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday alleged that the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) was rattled by what his party had achieved, and wanted to finish AAP.

In a press conference, Delhi CM - a day after Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal cancelled the allotment of office space to the Aam Aadmi Party on DDU Marg near ITO - said that his party had "67 seats in Delhi, but they are not giving us office".

"We have ended the education mafia, exempted the house tax, and we are determined to end the corruption in MCD, too," Kejriwal said, adding that "it was sad for the ruling party of the national capital not to have an office to work out of."

Mentioning the number of offices and plots BJP and Congress have in the city, Kejriwal said: "Congress has 5 offices, and 1 plot in Delhi. Bjp has 7 offices, and 1 plot in Delhi. But AAP's one and only party office had been snatched away."

Assuring the people of New Delhi that Kejriwal and his party was fighting for them, he said that his party is ready to function from the streets of Delhi. Kejriwal also said that BJP was acting against his party "because AAP had exposed the BJP's corruption in MCD".

At a rally in Nangloi on Friday, Kejriwal had said: “L-G sahib and BJP has put a lock at AAP office. They want to close our office. They even got CBI to raid my office (at the Delhi Secretariat). In this country, they have found only one corrupt person. That’s me. But they could only find four mufflers in the (CBI) raid.”

When CNN-News18 asked Kejriwal about the dilapidated state of MCD schools and hospitals, Kejriwal, referring to the entire scenario as "interesting", Kejriwal said: "The polls are for MCD, but everyone is targeting the Delhi government."

"Thousands of crore have been spent on these hospitals and schools by the Bjp over the years, but they are still in terrible condition," he said, adding that "if we come to power in MCD, we will transform the MCD schools and hospitals, just as we changed Delhi government schools and hospitals."
