New Delhi: Swaraj India President Yogendra Yadav said the MCD polls will be a referendum on the Delhi government and if the AAP fails to win even 50 percent of the seats, then Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal should resign.
In a letter to the Delhi Chief Minister, a day before the polls, Yadav held Kejriwal responsible for letting the "incompetent and corrupt" BJP regime in the MCD become viable in these civic elections.
"After you betrayed them, the people of Delhi feel incapable of distinguishing between good and bad. And many people, with a feeling of dejection, are now returning to the same old parties they had earlier rejected.
"I am compelled to say that while being drowned in your egotism,narcissism, and greed for power, you have committed these crimes," Yadav, a "former companion" of Kejriwal, sacked for questioning his style of functioning, said in a letter. Elections will be held for the 272 seats in South, North and East MCDs.
"If you lose this referendum merely 2 years after winning 67 out of 70 seats in Delhi, morality demands that you abstain from making excuses like EVMs, resign from the post of the Chief Minister, and that your government must go back to the people for a vote of confidence, this in keeping with the principles of recall," Yadav said.
Attacking Kejriwal over his poll promise of abolishing house tax, Yadav said it indicates that the AAP will face a drubbing in the polls.
"The manner in which you have offered inducements, fear and threats to voters during the ongoing campaign proves that you can clearly see the writing on the wall," he said.
