AAP starts a “washing machine” campaign to criticize the BJP for imprisoning opposition leaders

Tuesday saw the start of a fresh campaign by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which claimed that the BJP was “poaching” politicians who had been charged with corruption and offered “to drop the charges” in exchange for their joining the party.

 

During the launch of the “BJP washing machine” campaign, AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj claimed that charges against senior NCP leader and Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, former Congress leader and BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP Ashok Chavan, and former Congress leader and Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma were dropped after they joined or supported the BJP.

When criticizing the BJP for inducting individuals like Ajit Pawar, Ashok Chavan, and Himanta Biswa Sarma—all of whom were accused of corruption—the opposition parties often refer to the BJP as a “washing machine.”

While demonstrating the operation of the apparatus, Delhi Cabinet Minister Saurabh Bharadwaj said that the BJP has been running a six-month campaign claiming that Himanta Biswa Sarma was a part of the Saradha fraud.

He said, “But all his sins were washed away when he was inducted into the BJP.” The senior AAP leader said that “the ED and CBI no longer bothers them after getting washed in the BJP washing machine.”

He said that central investigative agencies harass or imprison leaders who refuse the offer to join the BJP.

The Delhi cabinet member said, “On the other hand, the BJP and their agencies fabricated cases against them and sent them to jail when Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain, who improved the education and health systems in Delhi, did not succumb to their pressure.” The national government, headed by the BJP, is allegedly abusing inquiry agencies for political advantage, according to Bharadwaj.

Former chief minister of Maharashtra Ashok Chavan was implicated in the Adarsh Society fraud. The society’s members were warriors and the wives of those killed in the Kargil War. However, the ownership guidelines were broken. Narendra Modi, the prime minister, had singled him out. However, he joined the BJP today, he said.

Another in attendance minister from Delhi, Gopal Rai, stated: “The BJP and PM Modi claim that they are fighting this election to remove corruption. However, this claim’s reality is a little different.”
