New Delhi:  Amid media reports that AAP might not give party tickets to six of its former legislators for the Delhi Assembly polls, Delhi BJP today termed the move as an indicator that AAP has already accepted defeat.  

“In political life, we see such a massive change as an indicator of conceding defeat,” Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay said while addressing party workers from two Delhi's trans-Yamuna districts - North East and Naveen Shahdara.  

He called upon the workers to give the party a 5/5 result from their districts. While BJP Pradesh Organisation General Secretary Vijay Sharma directed party men to go door-to-door for membership campaign, MP Manoj Tiwari assured the party leadership that workers of North East district will play an important role in winning all 10 seats in his parliamentary constituency.  

Sources said AAP has decided not to give tickets to six former legislators including former Speaker of the Assembly Maninder Singh Dhir, Raju Dhingan, Dharmendra Singh Kohli, Harish Khanna and Rajesh Garg.

The sources said the party has taken the decision not to give tickets to six former legislators following “ground reports” on their performance.

Meanwhile, in order to connect to city's youth ahead of the assembly elections, BJP is all set to launch its website in the national capital.

The party had shut down its website four or five months ago due to some reason and now owing to Assembly elections, the party wants to come up with a new website with which it aims to connect with Delhiites, especially the youth.
