The Delhi Assembly Elections are just a day away and the party workers have been relentlessly campaigning for the same in the national capital. Looking at the same, the ruling party in Maharashtra, Shiv Sena has lauded Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for the work done by Aam Admi Party (AAP) government. While Sena was all praises for AAP, it slammed the BJP for its communal polarisation-based politics to garner votes.

"Narendra Modi and Amit Shah have put up all their efforts in Delhi after they lost Maharashtra and Jharkhand. Nothing wrong if they want to win Delhi, but despite an army of 200 MPs, BJP CMs and the entire Modi cabinet, it seems that Kejriwal is weighing heavy on all others," an editorial in Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamana said on Friday.

Saamna's editorial said that Kejriwal sought votes on the basis of work he had done throughout his five years in power. Lauding his work, the editorial demanded that such kind of politics must be welcomed beyond party lines and cited the voters of Delhi as 'intelligent'. Hitting out their former ally, it added that the BJP was trying to blossom lotuses in a dried pond.

It further launched attack on the BJP stating that the Centre had been creating obstacles for the AAP government. 

"Even after having limited power and despite regular obstacles created by the Centre, his [Kejriwal] work in the field of education, health and public facilities is ideal," the Sena said.

The editorial further said that the Modi government should have looked to use the Kejriwal model in other states. However, it alleged, the Bharatiya Janata Party ran its campaign only to prove that Kejriwal a liar.

"If a state was doing well, appreciating it is the duty of the leader, but the large-heartedness is no more left in Delhi," the Sena said in Saamana.

It also called out the BJP leaders for referring to Kejriwal as a terrorist. Citing the same, it asked why hadn't the Centre taken action against the Delhi CM if he was a terrorist.
