NEW DELHI: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has lauded the attempts of the citizens of Turkey, who resisted attempts of the Army to overthrow a civilian government in their country. Party has said that the passion of Turkish people remind them of the passion of Delhi people, who had overwhelmingly voted for AAP just like Turkish people had voted for Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
“Army kept harassing Erdoğan, but Erdoğan kept working for the people of Turkey. This won hearts of the aam aadmi of Turkey, who were willing to sacrifice their lives for Erdoğan. This is so similar to relationship between Narendra Modi and Arvind Kejriwal,” AAP leader Ashish Khetan claimed.
“Narendra Modi and L-G of Delhi are like the Turkish Army while Arvind Kejriwal is like Recep Tayyip Erdoğan,” Khetan elaborated so that everyone in the party and press conference understood the meaning, and he is not forced to apologize again for a wrong comparison. Earlier Khetan had ended up comparing Guru Granth Sahib with AAP’s manifesto.
Welcoming the development in Turkey that could have overthrown the pro-Islamic government, AAP said that this should act as a warning to the anti-Islamic forces led by Narendra Modi back home.
“If Modi, through his agent L-G, tries to overthrow the democratically elected Kejriwal government, millions of Delhi citizens will come out in roads in support of Kejriwal and thwart such fascist attempts,” AAP leader Ashutosh issued the warning.
AAP pointed out how President Erdoğan and his party used social media to exhort and gather citizens to fight the army, and said that AAP will similarly use its social media power to defeat any possible coup against the Kejriwal government.
“One Ankit Lal can take care of entire battalion marching on the orders of L-G,” Ashutosh claimed.
The warning by AAP has been rejected by BJP as being childish and facetious, but experts think that the incidents of Turkey are a fair warning to Narendra Modi.
“It shows the power of the people, and prepare are with Kejriwal,” neutral analyst Abhay Kumar Dubey said.
