AAP a one-man party, Kejri failed: Javadekar

BJP on Tuesday claimed that AAP is a one-man party and its leader Arvind Kejriwal has “failed” to live up to his words. Union minister Prakash Javadekar said when Kejriwal joined politics, people thought a revolutionary has arrived as he refused to accept perks that come with a government post.

“He said he will not avail official accommodation and vehicle, but now has four bungalows and 17 vehicles as chief minister,” Javadekar claimed.

“Kejriwal is complaining that so many BJP leaders are campaigning to defeat him. Some parties are being run by families, the AAP is a party of one man while the uniqueness of the BJP is that the entire party is a family,” he said during an interaction.

Javadekar, who is in-charge of Delhi BJP for the assembly polls, said BJP has always practised politics of performance, not the politics of entitlement.
