#CleanPolitics Vs #CrazyKejaria: AAP, BJP fight on Twitter ahead of Delhi polls

As the President dissolved the Delhi Assembly on Wednesday, paving the way for fresh polls in the state, BJP and AAP, the two main contenders in the now inevitable Delhi elections, have started bickering against each other.

Even before the poll dates could be announced, supporters of BJP and AAP have started a war on Twitter. It's all about who can ridicule the other party and laud their own party's achievements on Twitter.

The hashtag #CrazyKejaria  was started by BJP supporters where they are mocking Arvind Kejriwal, saying that the APP leader is scared of Modi wave.

However, soon after #CrazyKejaria started trending on Twitter, the supporters of AAP and Arvind Kejriwal began tweeting using the hashtag #CleanPolitics explaining why AAP is the only honest political party in the country.

#CleanPolitics overtook #CrazyKejaria as the most trending hashtag in India, although #CrazyKejaria was not far behind, trending on the No 2 spot.

Some of the posts with #CleanPolitics also referred to AAP asking people for donations for better politics in the country.

The Union Cabinet had on Tuesday recommended the dissolution of the Assembly following recommendation of LG Najeeb Jung after talks on Monday with BJP, Congress and AAP which expressed inability to form government and sought fresh mandate.

While the fresh elections may be held early next year, the process for the 25 November by-elections to three constituencies, for which last date of nominations is Wednesday, was revoked by the Election Commission on Wednesday.

Delhi Assembly had been in suspended animation since February this year after the Kejriwal-led AAP government quit office.
