The ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) continued to trade barbs ahead of the Delhi Assembly Elections this year. On Thursday, AAP took a swipe at the BJP on Twitter tweeting 'Happy New Year' wishes to '7 Chief Minister candidates of Delhi BJP'. It was an attempt to highlight the ongoing uncertainty over BJP's chief ministerial candidate in the state.
The tweet accompanied a large banner that showed Manoj Tiwari, Gautam Gambhir, Vijay Goel, Hardeep Singh Puri, Harsh Vardhan, Vijender Gupta and Parvesh Sahib Singh as the seven "candidates".
This tweet comes a day after Union Minister and senior BJP leader Prakash Javadekar said that nothing had been decided about the party's chief ministerial candidate for forthcoming Assembly elections in Delhi. Javadekar, who is the party's in-charge for the election, said the party would take decisions as per strategy.
A very Happy New Year to all 7 CM candidates of Delhi BJP @GautamGambhir, @ManojTiwariMP, @VijayGoelBJP, @HardeepSPuri, @drharshvardhan, @Gupta_vijender, @p_sahibsingh— AAP (@AamAadmiParty) January 2, 2020
But the question is who will contest against @ArvindKejriwal pic.twitter.com/Y13RSVpzu2
On November 24 Union Minister Hardeep Puri, one of the BJP leaders in AAP's tweet, appeared to suggest that Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari would be the party's chief ministerial candidate.
AAP are contesting the elections under the leadership of chief minister Arvind Kejriwal. AAP had come to power with a massive win in 2015 winning 67 out of the 70 seats. The party is using the slogan - 'Ache beete 5 saal, lage raho Kejriwal (Past five years have been good, keep going with Kejriwal') in the polls.
