NEW DELHI - Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday demanded BJP to declare the name of their Chief Ministerial candidate, and said he is ready to debate with that person.
''I would like to tell BJP that people of Delhi want the BJP to declare a Chief Ministerial candidate and I am ready to debate with that person,'' Kejriwal said, while releasing the AAP manifesto for the Assembly elections scheduled to be held on February 8.
Kejriwal challenged BJP to declare a Chief Ministerial candidate by tomorrow 1300 hrs.
''We have the manifesto and also the face of the Chief Minister. We will make Delhi the best city in the world. Let the BJP tell why the people of Delhi should vote for them and who their Chief Minister’s face is?'' Kejriwal said.
''Home Minister Amit Shah says that he would name the CM candidate once he gets Delhi's mandate. But the people of Delhi want to know now who would be their CM if they vote for the BJP. What if Mr Shah names someone uneducated and incompetent?" Kejriwal said.
Releasing the manifesto, Kejriwal said that in past five years, his government has given relief to Delhiites in various sectors by solving their basic problems like school, hospital, education etc.
He further said that this manifesto is a vision to take Delhi to next level.
"We want to make Delhi a capital of developed nation for which we need support from all agencies, Centre along with two crore people of Delhi", he said.

Full statehood to Delhi, implementing Jan Lokpal Bill, Doorstep ration delivery, expanding Delhi Metro, Yamuna riverside development, 24x7 shopping bazaarm, women safety, health, 24-hour electricity and clean water are among other promises of the AAP.
The AAP also promised free pilgrimage to 10 lakh senior citizens.
