first_imgThe BJP finally rolled out its biggest star attraction, Bollywood dream girl Hema Malini, in its high-voltage MCD election campaign.The Mathura MP descended on the Capital early on Saturday morning and participated in a roadshow with Union minister for science and technology and earth sciences Harsh Vardhan, in his constituency Chandni Chowk.The veteran actor – smartly clad in a pink saree and sporting shades, with her staff holding up a big green umbrella – mounted an open vehicle with Harsh Vardhan.Inspite of the continuous rose petal showers and cheers from onlookers, she looked visibly uncomfortable in the 40 degree Celsius Delhi summer.The two covered 15 MCD wards including Model Town, Sadar Bazar, Ballimaran, Matiya Mahal and Chandni Chowk, with an entourage of more than 100 bikes and cars bearing the saffron flag in tow.’ONLY NATIONALIST PARTY IN INDIA’While the Padma Shri awardee preferred to escape the heat the moment it got over and left in her car, Harsh Vardhan said, “In 1990, when the BJP was created, we were called ‘communal.’ Now, people realise that we are not a sectarian or communal but the only ‘nationalist’ party in India.”The convoy carried posters of various BJP candidates in the MCD election from Chandni Chowk including Seema Gupta from Ward number 77N, Model Nagar, and Harishankar Babu from Ward number 76N, Sangam Park.On the Aam Aadmi Party, Harsh Vardhan said, “They deliberately choked municipal bodies of funds, which they lawfully deserved. In fact, the central government passes funds to the Delhi government, a part of which has to be furthered to MCDs, but the Delhi government didn’t do that.”advertisementOn Kejriwal, he said, “Delhiites will teach him a lesson just as he has been given a befitting response in the Rajouri Garden bypoll few days back.”We will selflessly serve Delhi if we come to power again. We will work on the lines of our Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision to make Delhi one of the finest capital cities of the world,” the minister added.ALSO WATCH | Delhi Dangal: 10 reasons why the MCD poll is important for voterslast_img
