Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) 23 October, hit out at the Aam Aadmi Party government, alleging that disrespecting Indian soliders and supporting traitors had become its habit and asked if the party "wanted to speak Pakistan's language".

"It has become Delhi government's habit to disrespect the Indian soldiers and support the traitors. When Uri happened and 18 Indian soldiers were killed, we avenged their deaths by killing four of theirs.

"What else were they (Indian Army) supposed to do? But will you question them (the Army) about how and why of the operation? Do you want to speak Pakistan's language? Hafeez Saeed's language? Their media's language?" Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay asked at an event here.

Upadhyay also appealed to people to "take revenge" from the AAP leaders who have "ushered Delhi into darkness" and claimed that the party had "cheated" the people of Delhi and taken decisions "in contrast" to their poll promises.

"AAP came to power promising to regularise contract workers, including safai karmachari, doctors, teachers and nurses. But (after coming to power), forget regularisation, they issued a letter barring these employees from being regularised and in fact suggested that they be removed altogether in phased manner," he claimed.

Upadhyay also exhorted BJP workers to reach out to a wide section of voters before the municipal polls next year and inform them about the various schemes launched by the Centre.
