Delhi BJP President Manoj Tiwari said today that full election for all the 70 seats in the Delhi Assembly must be held, and not just for the 20 seats on which Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs have been disqualified.

Tiwari was reacting to AAP leader and deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia‘s letter released today in which he had tried to woo the Delhi voters for the bypoll which is soon expected to elect 20 MLAs.

“Sisodia’s old hollow tactics of evoking sympathy practiced by Arvind Kejriwal government do not any more impress the citizens,” Tiwari rebuked.

He added that people of Delhi are actually looking forward toward fresh polls to Delhi Assembly not just a byelection for 20 seats.

“We call upon Aam Aadmi Party to come before the people in election rather than trying to play the victim card. People very well know the disqualification of MLAs is a result of Kejriwal Team’s greed for power,” Tiwari continued.

Twenty AAP MLAs who were accused of holding ‘office of profit’ were disqualified Sunday by the President of India Ram Nath Kovind on the recommendation of the Election Commission of India (ECI).

Now the number of AAP MLAs is reduced from 66 to 46 in the 70-member Delhi Assembly. The mid-term poll for at least 20 seats is soon expected to happen in Delhi.
