AAP vs BJP in Delhi
The Aam Aadmi Party and the BJP are locked in a bitter battle in the national capital. The acrimony between the parties increased after the Delhi Services Bill was introduced by Centre and passed in the Parliament, effectively handing over important authority making rights like transfers and other services to Delhi LG.
AAP termed the move by Centre as an attempt to thwart the working of a democratically elected government and BJP's backdoor attempt to control Delhi. The BJP on its part alleged AAP of trying to rake up issues to divert attention from important issues and has led an unrelenting attack on the BJP on alleged corruption by select AAP leaders like Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain.
