After fielding controversial self-proclaimed godman Swami Om as the Lok Sabha candidate from the New Delhi constituency, several Hindu outfits have announced that they will take on the Aam Aadmi Party in at least five seats in Delhi.

Speaking to IANS on Saturday, Mukesh Jain of Dara Sena said the group had decided to launch the candidates due to the “anti-Hindu” stance of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

“We have launched Swami Om and throughout the country we have decided to field at least 50 candidates,” he said. “In Delhi, we will filed candidates in five seats.”

Asked why they were not supporting the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Jain said the BJP had its own limitations.

“They are against Kejriwal, but are not as vocal. They have their own limitations. We are and will be vocal against Kejriwal,” he said.
