Vote for BJP, Blame Yourself for Dengue: Arvind Kejriwal

He has also promised to put an end to the garbage woes in Delhi within a year and control the vector-borne diseases in three years.

He said he was sick and exhausted of telling the BJP-run civic body to clean up Delhi despite his government giving it crores of rupees.

A BJP leader who attended the meeting told Mail Today that Sahasrabuddhe asked BJP leaders to ensure that its traditional vote bank remained intact. All this will be answered on April 26.

Earlier, AAP convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had accused the Election Commission of arrogance and not accepting that there could be a fault with the EVMs. And for the first time in MCD elections, None Of The Above (NOTA) option will be available.

The AAP, which has been hogging the news headlines over alleged overspending on government advertisements has played on its "house tax waiver" poll promise, in its MCD poll campaigning, while dovetailing it with sly political attack on the BJP.

It will determine whether the sway of Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP - which had stunned all by bagging 67 seats in the 2015 assembly polls - still holds and if the Rajouri Garden defeat was due to hostile constituency dynamics.

Postal voting is voting in an election whereby ballot papers are distributed to government officials and people on election duty so that they can cast their votes. The Congress also made a similar demand.

In its arguments, the Delhi poll panel said the question raised by the AAP on the use of EVMs in the MCD polls was sending a wrong message to the voters.

The BJP's poll effort saw rallies by party chief Amit Shah as also several union ministers including Rajnath Singh, M. Venkaiah Naidu, Smriti Irani and Uma Bharti.

A day ahead of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi elections, two opinion polls claimed a clear victory for Bhartiya Janata Party while giving a distant second position to Aam Aadmi Party. Congress had fielded some of its top leaders including Jairam Ramesh, Salman Khurshid and Shashi Tharoor for campaigning.
