Accusing the saffron party of pressuring media to spread propaganda, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said the "heavy BJP machinery" deployed during campaigning made the MCD polls the toughest election contested by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) so far. Referring to the purported videos of jailed minister Satyender Jain, the chief minister said the BJP pressured the media to spread "propaganda against us".

Addressing the newly elected councillors, Kejriwal asserted that the AAP does positive politics and talks about "our work"

"This election was very very tough. A few people say it was an easy election, but it was not. The way they conspired against us and the way they used state machinery against us, it was the toughest elections we ever contested," Kejriwal claimed.

"Heavy BJP machinery deployed during campaigning made MCD poll the toughest election contested by the AAP so far," he added.

"We do positive politics and talk about our work. The BJP through fake videos and letters of a jailed conman did not allow us to discuss our work narrative," the AAP supremo said.

"Moreover, the way they pressured the media, they scolded the media and twisted its arm, they ran misinformation campaign against us. 

There was a new fake video every morning at 9 o'clock," he alleged.
