Friday led to a lot of accusations by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) towards the BJP leadership for failing to take appropriate actions against South Delhi MP, Ramesh Bidhuri, who reportedly used ‘abusive’ language against Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his family.
AAP members began to question the ‘double standards’ of the BJP leadership over the issue, after a video clip of Bidhuri delivering a speech during a protest in March in Tughlakabad on Friday was aired. This video was broadcasted by some television channels and caught the attention of AAP members and began circulating.
“Those who reacted to @ArvindKejriwal’s non-abusive words coward/psychopath, silent about filthy abuses used by Modiji’s MP, Ramesh Bidhuri,” tweeted senior AAP leader Ashish Talwar.
AAP sources said that the language used by Bidhuri is a result of a “race in BJP to become president of Delhi unit.”
“The party has served show cause notice to one MP for participating in a Delhi government function. On other hand, it is allowing another member of Parliament who is competing to become Delhi president to use such language against a chief minister,” a senior AAP leader said.
Meanwhile, the BJP MP from South Delhi, said “I did not make any abusive comment against Kejriwal. His ministers are involved in corruption and he has failed to fulfill promises made before election. Some members from public made remarks and it shows their anger against AAP government.”
