Arvind Kejriwal hits out at BJP after Navjot Singh Sidhu quits party
Delhi chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal does not miss an opportunity to lash out at the BJP government . Kejriwal whose ties with the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is bitter took another dig at the ruling government at the centre after Navjot Singh Sidhu , a nominated Rajya Sabha BJP MP resigned from the party. While saluting Sidhu and sparking off speculations of the former cricket turned politician joining AAP , Kejriwal said the “dictatorial attitude” of the BJP’s “top leadership” is making “honest people” feel stifled in the party.
“Honest and good people are feeling extremely suffocated within BJP due to dictatorial attitude of its top leadership,” tweeted Kejriwal, who is National Convenor of the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
A senior AAP leader, who did not want to be named, told IANS that Sidhu may hold a press conference in a day or two to announce his future political moves.
Sidhu was nominated to the Rajya Sabha by the BJP in April this year and tendered his resignation leaving the party stunned. Sidhu has been very livid after he was forced to leave his Amritsar constituency seat for senior BJP leader and now Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. Jaitley incidentally despite the Modi wave lost to Congress candidate former Congress CM Captain Amarinder Singh.
