It was the decision of the BJP top brass not to form the government in Delhi despite emerging as the single-largest party in the Assembly elections. According to senior leaders, the top brass believes the party would win majority of the Lok Sabha seats in Delhi if it is seen as not hungry for power.
According to a senior leader, the party believed it was best to play the role of a strong Opposition and lay the groundwork for winning majority of the seats in the national capital in the Lok Sabha elections.
Predicting that the AAP government will fall in a few months, the BJP has decided to aggressively use the social media — AAP's main tool for enlisting support — to expose the party. The BJP believes that the AAP will fail in fulfilling the promises it has made to the people of Delhi.
BJP's social media cell has been asked to re-tweet all the promises and statements made by Arvind Kejriwal in a bid to expose the AAP and regain those seats in the Lok Sabha elections, a member of the social media cell said.
Several BJP leaders have already re-tweeted Kejriwal's promise of not giving or taking the support of other political parties for government formation and vowing to reject any offer of support from the two main political parties.
"We have been advised not to make personal comments on Kejriwal but re-tweet his statements and promises, more so his earlier stand that he would not take the support of any party to form the government. We will let the people decide. It will be a calibrated attack on the AAP and Kejriwal," Khem Chand Sharma, social media in-charge of Delhi BJP, said.
In a scenario where the Congress withdraws support to the AAP and re-elections are held, the BJP hopes to win all urban seats. "We won all the rural seats and the AAP did poorly there," a senior leader said.
