NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), headed by former Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal just ahead of the Delhi Elections has once again hit the controversial side as one of its supporters has been caught on camera celebrating the party’s victory by throwing notes in the air.
After Nand Kishore Beniwal of AAP was elected to the Board that governs the Delhi Cantonment Area of Army Base in the capital, his supporters could be seen tossing currency notes in the air.
On being quizzed about such celebrations, Beniwal stated that he is unaware of any such supporter and who threw the money and has not supported any celebration like this.
“I seriously condemn this, a strict action will be taken as we are looking into the matter” expressed another AAP leader Atishi Marlena.
Three big parties including Bharatiya Janata Party, Congress and AAP battled in the elections, the results of which highlights the mood of voters as Delhi is all set to vote once again for its government on February 7.
This was the first time AAP contested the Cantonment Board election as it was formed in 2012.
The Election Commission today announced that Delhi will go to polls on February 7 and the verdict for the same will be declared on February 10.
Former Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is once again requesting people to vote for him and is high on hopes to form the government in Delhi another time, this time for a longer time. He resigned as the Delhi Chief Minister in February last year after 49 days in office.
The stage is set for the biggest clash between AAP and BJP in 2015 and it is to be seen if Delhi offers another chance to Mr. Kejriwal, who later tagged his resignation as a ‘mistake’.
