New Delhi [India], Apr 19 (ANI): Expressing confidence of the BJP's splendid show in the MCD polls, Union Information and Broadcasting Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu on Wednesday said that people have rejected the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) across the country while comparing the ruling party in Delhi with the Congress. Naidu said that people of Delhi would give their mandate to the BJP in the MCD polls. "In the entire country wherever by-elections or municipal or panchayat elections were held whether in Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Rajasthan or Chandigarh the people are voting for the BJP," Naidu said while addressing an election campaign in R.K. Puram. "In upcoming the elections, the Delhi people will also give their mandate to the BJP and will also make BJP to win in these three corporation elections also," he added. The senior BJP leader also trained his guns on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and alleged that the AAP supremo has become 'over ambitious'. "AAP raised the hope of the people in the city that is why the people voted for Modi ji in the Centre and Kejriwal in the state government. But unfortunately, this Arvind Kejriwal leaving the Delhi administration, the people of Delhi went to contest the elections becoming over-ambitious. Then he went to Goa, Punjab, Gujarat wherever he gone the people have rejected AAP. We have seen in Rajouri Garden also that people have rejected the AAP because the people are tired of AAP. There is not much difference between Congress and AAP," he added. Naidu later stated that the AAP and Congress are two sides of the same coin. "There is nothing much to choose between AAP and Congress. They are like the two sides of the same coin," he tweeted. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-cards="hidden" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">There is nothing much to choose between AAP & Congress.
