NEW DELHI: Attacking Aam Aadmi Party over the fake degree row and domestic violence case against its MLAs, Delhi BJP today said that the "self character certificate" given by the ruling party to its members has "fallen flat".

"Today, we see two faces of AAP. One was before the Assembly polls. The second is what we see today... they had issued self character certificates to its members which have now fallen flat," Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay told reporters here.

He said AAP has been following the principle that all its members are clean and those in the opposition are "characterless."

Upadhyay was referring to the controversy which has erupted over the alleged fake degrees of former Delhi Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar and the domestic violence accusations levelled against Malviya Nagar MLA Somnath Bharti by his wife.

Referring to the claims made by the Arvind Kejriwal government, the BJP leader demanded that it should come out with details of officers held for corruption.

"Their hoardings across the city say 35 officials have been arrested for graft. Only two belong to MCD who were arrested on smaller charges. Who are the others? They belong to the Delhi government. But where are the details?" he asked.

He also charged that the state government was "defaming" the MCD.

Upadhyay was speaking after the launch of four mobile dispensaries of the South Delhi Municipal Corporation by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley at his official residence.

Welcoming the mobile dispensaries, Jaitley said it will help fill the gap in areas where the poor have little access to medical facilities.

Jaitley said that although the cost of health services in Delhi is lower than in some other places, the poor may still find medical expenses to be a burden.

The SDMC is already running 10 such mobile dispensaries in various zones.
