The BJP on Friday hit back at the Aam Aadmi Party and the Congress for their charges against Kiran Bedi, the party’s chief ministerial candidate in Delhi.

While the AAP alleged that Ms. Bedi and V.K. Singh were the BJP “moles” in the India Against Corruption movement, the Congress said Ms. Bedi was selectively targeting the party during the movement which was acting as the BJP’s “B-team.”

Countering the charges, BJP spokesman Sambit Patra said both the parties were attacking Ms. Bedi and Mr. Singh because of a “lack” of leadership.”

“A new game has begun in Delhi. This is the mole-mole game which exposes the lack of confidence in the AAP and the Congress. It exposes their depression, frustration and their confusion ever since Ms. Bedi was declared the BJP’s CM face.”

“Both parties are making irrelevant statements. If the anti-graft movement was propped up by the BJP and the RSS as alleged by the Congress, then why did not the BJP extend support to the AAP government in Delhi? How would the Congress explain its leader Sheila Dikshit offering support to the AAP? Who is a bigger leader, Ms. Dikshit or Ajay Maken, and why is there a dichotomy in their statements?” he asked.

He also asked the AAP to explain why it did not expose Ms. Dikshit as promised. “Does that not mean there is a clandestine agreement between the Congress and the AAP?”
