Bangalore: BJP state unit president Pralhad Joshi on Tuesday took a dig at Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal for criticising leaders of the saffron party.
"Kejriwal failed to provide good governance when given an opportunity to rule Delhi. He has no moral right to criticise BJP leaders," Joshi said at an interaction organised by the Bangalore Press Club.
Training his guns on the UPA II next, Joshi said many Congress leaders, including a few union ministers, do not want to contest the elections owing to its debacle in the Centre.
On Sushma Swaraj's statement on the entry of B Sreeramulu, Joshi defended the party's decision to allow his reentry, saying it had been cleared by the party's parliamentary board.
"As of now, the BJP central leadership had ratified Sreeramulu's entry and would decide on the merger later. He would resign from state assembly membership and contest Lok Sabha elections on a BJP ticket," he said.
On former chief minister BS Yeddyurappa's role in the run-up to the elections, he said the senior leader has been involved in decision-making processes of the party. "The BJP will announce the candidates for remaining three Lok Sabha constituencies of Hassan, Bellary and Bidar tomorrow," he said.
