Congress challenged BJP to dissolve Delhi Assembly


New Delhi (Sept 13, 2014): Congress on Saturday challenged BJP to dissolve the Delhi Assembly if they are so confident of 'Modi wave' in the city which has been attributed for ABVP's clean sweep in Delhi University Student's Union elections.

"If BJP is so confident of Modi's wave in the national capital, the saffron party should then immediately demand the dissolution of Assembly and face the elections," DPCC chief spokesperson Mukesh Sharma said.

After a gap of 18 years, BJP's student wing Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad today swept Delhi University students' union elections, trouncing Congress' NSUI to bag all four positions and credited the triumph to "Modi wave".

Congress, however, said that BJP should not attribute the DUSU election victory to "Modi Wave".

"There is no Modi Wave in the city. BJP should not be happy over the defeat of NSUI, which is a students' organisation. This elections can not be seen as a political defeat or political win. They (ABVP) have won elections due to spreading of misinformation over FYUP and other issues," Sharma said.

The Congress leader also said that NSUI's presidential candidate has lost elections by just around 900 votes, which is not a big margin.

In DUSU elections, the ABVP won posts of president, vice president, secretary and joint secretary by comfortable margins, bettering last year's performance when it had lost one of the seats to the National Students' Union of India (NSUI).

BJP is apparently not in favour of fresh elections in the capital and has not disclosed its stand over the government formation.

On September 8, the Aam Aadmi Party had accused vice president of Delhi BJP of offering bribe to a party legislator to switch sides against the backdrop of government formation moves in the capital.
