How to lose an election – Delhi BJP shows the way

Of late, many in Delhi have received recorded phone calls ostensibly from a man who identifies himself as Sunil. In the minute long phone call, the man goes on to abuse the Aam Aadmi Party and its leader Arvind Kejriwal. Sunil claims Kejriwal betrayed Anna Hazare and will betray the people of Delhi as well for he will have a post election alliance with the Congress. He says AAP is Congress’ ‘B-team’. Sunil appeals to Delhi voters to vote for the BJP for its stellar performance in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi.

If anything the people who have received the phone call have found it deeply offensive. Some have tweeted that the phone call made them change their decision to vote for the BJP, expressing an intention to vote for the AAP instead.

However, a BJP leader denied that the party was behind the phone calls. Whatever may be the truth the recorded phone call is hurting the BJP’s interest. It betrays the BJP’s nervousness as regards to the AAP and makes the latter out to be a credible challenger to the BJP.
