New Delhi : Arvind Kejriwal, chief minister of Delhi, attacked the BJP today over the "postponement" of municipal elections, saying if the BJP conducts the polls on time and wins, AAP will quit politics.
His comments follow the approval on Tuesday of a bill to unify the North, East and South civic bodies in Delhi.
"We (the AAP) will leave politics if BJP gets the MCD polls held (timely) and wins them," Mr Kejriwal said the reporters.
He added, "The BJP says it is the biggest political party in the world but it got scared by a small party and a small election. I dare the BJP for timely MCD polls."
Later, Kejriwal tweeted that deferring the elections is an "insult to martyrs".
His tweet reads, "Postponement of Delhi Municipal Corporation elections by BJP is an insult to the martyrs who had made sacrifices to establish democracy in the country by driving the British out of the country. Today they are postponing the Delhi Municipal Corporation elections due to fear of defeat, tomorrow they will postpone the elections of the states and the country,"
