Delhi: Poaching and poster wars as Rajinder Nagar bypoll campaign gathers pace

The campaign for the Rajinder Nagar bypoll is gathering pace, and ferocity, with the top leadership of both the BJP and AAP running campaigns in the constituency, poaching local leaders and launching sharp attacks on each other. The seat fell vacant after erstwhile MLA Raghav Chadha was nominated by the AAP to Rajya Sabha.

In the past one week, BJP MPs including UP’s Deputy Chief Minister Brijesh Pathak, Manoj Tiwari, Gautam Gambhir and Hans Raj Hans have campaigned in the area for the party’s candidate Rajesh Bhatia. From the AAP, Deputy CM Manish Sisodia and minister Gopal Rai are among those who have hit the streets to gather support for their candidate Durgesh Pathak.

The BJP also claims to have poached AAP leader Mamta Kochar, former DCPCR member Sonia Sachdeva and former MLA Vijender Garg’s brother Vinod Garg.
