MCD by-polls’ results are people’s verdict on Congress’ performance, CM should resign: Goel
New Delhi, May 7: Congratulating the Bharatiya Janata Party workers and common people for the resounding victory on two seats in the MCD by-polls, the Delhi Bharataiya Janata Party President Shri Vijay Goel said the people have given a befitting reply to the highly personalised and negative campaign of Congress leadership in these by polls.
“Undoubtedly, the victory in these polls will further boost moral of the BJP cadres before assembly polls. More than that it is a huge dampener for the Congress Party. People’s verdict on these two seats is a reflects clearly that Delhi citizens feel outraged, angry and betrayed by the Congress government,” Shri Goel said
The BJP has won both the MCD seats, where poll results were declared today, by impressive margins. The BJP has won both the seats by a margin of more than 4000 votes each. The party has wrested Nangloi seat from Congress while it has successfully retained its Yamuna Vihar seat.
“The writing on the wall is clear. The people of Delhi have rejected Congress. Their massive advertising campaign prior to the election, which was a sheer pack of lies, could not mislead the people. Neither did their personal attacks on me worked out,” Shri Goel said.
The Congress had termed these polls as “semi-final” before the assembly polls. “People have defeated them in semi final and they would receive even a greater drubbing in coming assembly polls. If they are left with even an iota of morality, the Chief Minister should immediately step down after this drubbing as she herself termed it to be a referendum on her government’s performance,” Shri Goel said.
“I would like to reiterate that the power and water tariff hike was one of the key issues in these polls and the CM had launched a scathing attack on me when I asked for her resignation and sacking of her government due to breakdown of public order. The people of Delhi have responded to these personalised attacks on me by teaching them this hard-hitting lesson,” Shri Goel said.
Explaining the strategy which led to the BJP’s victory in these polls, Shri Goel said, “We had ensured that on every 20 households in these constituencies, there was a separate team of BJP workers deputed to be constantly in touch with them and take their feedback in writing.
In addition we mobilised the cadres in a well planned way and ensured effective management at the polling booth level during electioneering as well as on the polling day.”
The Delhi BJP President monitored the electioneering at these two seats personally on day-to-day basis. “The party fought these polls as a united and disciplined entity. We were able to formulate and execute our election strategy in a planned way. We were not deterred by personalised attacks and vicious campaigns by the CM and other Congress leaders,” Shri Goel said.
“This verdict is an expression of faith by common people in the BJP’s commitment and capability towards their well-being. We would continue to strive hard to meet expectations of people,” he added.
