New Delhi [India] Apr 22 (ANI): Former Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Yogendra Yadav on Saturday bowled a googly at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal just a day before the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) polls. Yadav wrote an open letter to AAP Supremo Kejriwal and challenged him to win at least 50 percent seats in the MCD polls to remain eligible for governing Delhi. Yadav told Kejriwal that "you have converted your popularity into a sort of referendum in tomorrow's MCD elections. Your party is asking votes in your name and even AAP's name is missing from the election hoardings". "AAP's internal survey says that your party is winning 218 seats in the MCD polls. I have one offer: if you get majority (137 seats) in all the three MCDs then I will concede that people of Delhi don't consider you as a cheat," writes Yadav. The letter adds: "If you lose within two years of winning 67 assembly seats out of 70, then it is the demand of the morality that you resign from the post of chief minister and your government should again seek the confidence of Delhi's voters on the principle of 'recall', which you mentioned two years back at Ramlila Maidan". Swaraj Abhiyan leader Yadav accused Kejriwal of betraying the trust of Delhiites . He alleged that it is only Arvind Kejriwal who is responsible for providing a comeback to corrupt Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the MCD polls. "I have travelled to nooks and corners of Delhi. Mounds of garbage are everywhere, sewers are blocked. Everyone knows the first responsibility is of the BJP, which is ruling MCD from last ten years. But, many voters, who voted for change in 2015, are going back to the BJP," says Yadav's letter. "I have come to a conclusion that you are responsible for betraying the trust of Delhiites, who have started thinking that they aren't able to differentiate between good and bad," said Yadav, adding that "I am forced to say that you have committed this crime (breaking the trust of Delhi's people) due to your arrogance, self-centeredness and lust for the chair".
