The ruling AAP unleashed a social media campaign targeting the BJP saying that the party was 'scared' of the implications of a functional anti-grafts ombudsman body in the national capital.'Feel nostalgic when i see this pic. We had burnt govt's 'jokepal' at that time,' Kejriwal tweeted, attaching a picture of him holding a burning copy of the draft Lokpal back in 2011.
AAP Delhi convenor Dilip Pandey suggested that BJP's 'fear' over Lokpal stems from the prevalence of rampant "corruption" in the civic bodies and the potential steps against it by the office of Lokpal in the future.

"BJP-run MCD is a hub of corruption. Everyone in Delhi experiences it. BJP-run MCD is financially and functionally collapsed. They know that Arvind Kejriwal wont ever spare them. That's why BJP is scared of Lokpal," Pandey cited.
In a series of tweets, AAP's social media team said that Lokpal does not suit the BJP as such an institution would ensure transparency, honesty and accountability, which are 'threats' to the saffron party. "BJP's opposition to AAP Govt's Lokpal makes it clear that BJP is scared of Lokpal. The status quo politics of BJP stands exposed today as BJP opposes AAP's strong anti corruption legislation. BJP is scared of Lokpal," the tweets said.
