New Delhi:

Former AAP MLA Sandeep Kumar, who was sacked from the party after an alleged sex scandal, was spotted campaigning for the BJP for the Delhi MCD polls, reports said on Monday.

Kumar, former SC/ST Welfare and Women and Child Development Minister in the Delhi government, was seen campaigning door-to-door on Sunday for Savita Khatri, BJP candidate from Narela.

“I am campaigning for Savita Khatri, BJP candidate from Narela and would campaign for all friends from BJP, BSP or Congress,” Kumar told a news channel.

However, the BJP has made it clear that the party did not invited him to campaign. "BJP never invited him for campaign. BJP Office Bearers & Karyakartas sent him back from rally venue in few seconds," said Delhi BJP spokesperson Tajinder Pal S Bagga.

Meanwhile, lashing out at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Kumar said, “Kejriwal is making attempts to befool and mislead the people of the country via jhaadu (broom, the party symbol)”.

On August 31, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal sacked the MLA from Sultanpur Majra from AAP after the CD row. On November 7, 2016, a Delhi court granted bail to Kumar.
