Aam Aadmi Party legislator Ved Prakash joined the Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday, with just a few weeks to go for the Delhi civic body elections, reported PTI. The Bawana MLA has also decided to step down from his posts in various government bodies. Prakash will put in his formal resign with the Assembly later in the day, reported Hindustan Times. He said the AAP had failed to keep its poll promises.

Prakash said the party had not done any work in his constituency in the past two years. He also accused the ruling party of ignoring its MLAs. “I was feeling suffocated,” he told reporters. “The ministers don’t take our calls. If we get to talk to them over phone, it is like you have just spoken to Clinton [former US president].”

Senior BJP leader Vijender Gupta claimed that more AAP MLAs were likely to switch camps soon. “There are other MLAs from AAP who are in touch with us, they may come to us,” he said. BJP Delhi chief Manoj Tiwari used the opportunity to point out the infighting and subsequent instability in the ruling party and the Arvind Kejriwal government.

In the 2015 elections, AAP won 67 seats in the 70-member Delhi Assembly and the BJP three.
