Aam Aadmi Party National Executive Committee Member Prashant Bhushan has raised doubts over the goof-up made by the BJP candidate for the Nilgiris constituency S Gurumurthy, which led to the rejection of his nomination suspecting that it was an arrangement for a post-poll tie-up between the DMK, which has nominated the 2G-tainted Raja as its candidate for the segment, and the BJP.
The top functionary of the AAP, who was here on Saturday to address an election campaign in support of his party candidate and PMANE coordinator SP Udayakumar, talking to media persons earlier said that the upcoming general election was a historical one. While in the previous elections, the fight would be restricted to the main stream parties alone. But now the main stream parties are corrupt and corporate and business houses were funding them in polls so that they could get decisions and policies in their favour. But AAP was different as it had been formed out of an anti corruption movement.
To a question whether the Nilgiris BJP candidate got money from Raja for not contesting the polls, Bhushan did not rule out that theory and said that the saffron party was keen on having a post-poll alliance either with the DMK or the AIADMK. Probably, the BJP may strike an alliance based on the number of seats that either of the dravidian party wins.
