“What happened on Sunday was a deliberate attempt by the chief minister to degrade the Gurugram MP. Whatever happened was not by chance. It’s an insult to the people of Gurugram, as he represents them all. Rao Inderjit has been winning elections repeatedly, and to treat someone of his stature in such a humiliating way is just not done. He has already expressed his displeasure, and whatever he said should be seen by the CM as a warning sign,” Tanwar said.
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which announced it would contest all 10 parliamentary constituencies and 90 assembly seats in the state on the same day, pointed out that a growing number of BJP leaders have started speaking out because they have realised the party is on a sticky wicket. “The Gurugram MP is not the only one to speak against the chief minister. Some MLAs spoke out against him earlier as well. BJP is being run by dictators and people inside are feeling suffocated, due to which they are openly expressing their views. These leaders have realised that voters are unhappy with the party and have therefore decided to speak out. The Gurugram MP, too, must have felt the pulse of his electorate. Sunday’s fiasco was created on purpose by the chief minister,” said Naveen Jaihind, AAP Haryana-in-charge.
