Hyderabad: Union minister and BJP leader Bandaru Dattatreya on Thursday said the results of Delhi civic polls reflected the good performance of the Modi government across the country and asked the AAP to stop criticising the prime minister.
"The AAP should at least now realise that delivery of goods is important. Performance is primary. Arvind Kejriwal (AAP Convener and Delhi CM) should immediately stop the criticism (of Prime Minister) Narendra Modi," he said in a statement in Hyderabad.
The Delhi civic poll results are a reflection of the success of the Modi government across the country, he said.
"The empty promises of Aam Aadmi Party like free power etc which are impractical have been rejected by the people of Delhi," the Union Minister of State for Labour said.
The BJP on Thursday scored a hat trick in the Delhi civic polls as it comfortably retained control of the three municipal corporations, dealing a severe blow to the AAP and dashing the Congress' hope of a revival.
Winning 181 out of the 270 wards where elections were held, the saffron party added muscle to its decade-long domination of the corporations, effortlessly bucking anti-incumbency by riding on the popularity of Modi.
