"Aam Aadmi Party MLA Gulab Singh Yadav was thrashed by AAP workers on the charge of selling tickets. Kejriwal ji, this is how the number of all the corrupt MLAs of AAP will come," Delhi BJP tweeted in Hindi. 

Reacting to the video, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said that “Unprecedented scenes from the party that indulged in the theatrical drama of honest politics. Such is AAP’s corruption that even their members are not sparing their MLAs!” 

Reacting to BJP’s criticism, Yadav said that the BJP is scared and its fear of losing MCD polls was evident in such claims. 

 “BJP is making baseless allegations of selling tickets. I am at Chhawla police station now, and I have seen BJP's corporator and BJP's candidate from this ward present in the police station to save those people (who attacked)… what can be bigger proof than this. The media is present here, must ask the BJP,” he tweeted in Hindi. Later on, many AAP leaders retweeted his post showing their support for him.

The polls are predicted to be a two-party contest between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). While BJP holds the civic reins in the national capital, AAP is in power in the state.
