Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb launched a no-holds-barred attack on Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal saying that the latter no longer dons a Gandhi cap as he is certain of his defeat. Deb is in Delhi to campaign for BJP for the upcoming Assembly elections. He was referring to campaign posters of AAP where Kejriwal doesn't don a Gandhi cap but his candidates do.

In a tweet, Biplab Kumar Deb said, "In the Assembly elections of 2015, there would not have been a single picture of Kejriwal without a (Gandhi) cap. But in this election, he has given up his cap. There are pictures of Sisodia in a cap at some places. Kejriwal knows the people of Delhi are going to take off his cap on February 8."

Delhi Assembly election

New Delhi will go to polls in a single-phase on February 8 and the counting of votes will take place on February 11. The BJP has fielded Bhartiya Janta Yuva Morcha president Sunil Yadav against Delhi CM Kejriwal from New Delhi constituency, and the Congress has pitted former NSUI Delhi president Ramesh Sabharwal against him. BJP is trying to make advances in the upcoming Assembly elections after the 2015 debacle where it won only three seats. During the 2015 elections, AAP won 67 seats out of the 70-seat Assembly. 

The Delhi Assembly Election results will be declared on February 11.
