Day after a ruckus broke out inside the Municipal Corporation of Delhi house, AAP and BJP have begun a poster war blaming each other for the violent clashes
The ruckus that erupted during elections for the six-member standing committee in the MCD house on Friday, has now reached Twitter in the form of a poster war between the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
The BJP on Saturday called AAP MLA Atishi Marlena a “villain" and accused her of creating the ruckus during elections for the six-member standing committee in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi House.
The party also shared a mock-up film poster with morphed pictures of AAP MLAs Atishi and Durgesh Pathak and Mayor Shelly Oberoi on Twitter, captioning it with “AAP's khalnayika" in Hindi. It also accused Atishi of orchestrating "violence and dictatorship in the House."
In response to the edited poster, AAP chose movie ‘Chor Machaye Shor's poster with morphed the images of BJP MPs Manoj Tiwari, Gautam Gambhir, councillor Rekha Gupta along with other leaders with the title "Ballot Chor Machaye Shor".
On caption, AAP said, "The BJP people who are making so much noise. These are the ones who stole ballot papers and are killers of democracy."
The MCD house witnessed huge protests by the BJP councillors after MCD Mayor Shelly Oberoi declared that a vote cast during the election was declared “invalid".
Within no time, the ruckus in the house took the form of violent clashes between councillors from the two parties. The ruckus began even before Oberoi could barely start to announce the results.
The councillors of both the party threw punches at each other. Shelly Oberoi has also alleged that some of the BJP members also made a life-threatening attack on her. The Delhi mayor also claimed that her colleague Ashu Thakur was attacked by another BJP councillor. On this, the BJP accused the AAP of tampering with election results.
