New Delhi,Mar 03 The AAP on Sunday attacked the BJP for fielding Bansuri Swaraj from the New Delhi constituency in the Lok Sabha elections, claiming she had represented "anti-national forces" in court, even as she hit back at Delhi's ruling party over its choice of candidate from the seat. Delhi Minister Atishi said at a press conference that Ms Swaraj -- the daughter of late BJP leader and former Union minister Sushma Swaraj -- should apologise to the people of the country for taking up such cases and also demanded that the party replace her. "Today, she will go to women in the New Delhi constituency and ask them for votes," Atishi said. She also demanded that the BJP replace Ms Swaraj as its candidate from the constituency. Hitting back, Ms Swaraj questioned the AAP on its choice of candidate, who was allegedly beaten up by his own cadre in Rajendra Nagar on Saturday. Responding to the AAP's allegations, she said, "I would like to ask the AAP - - why have you fielded a candidate who was beaten up by his own cadre in Rajendra Nagar yesterday (Saturday)?" "They have named a candidate who is not liked by his own party members. They can put allegations against us but people will give them a reply in the elections," she said. Somnath Bharti, the INDIA bloc candidate from the New Delhi constituency, also demanded that Swaraj and the BJP should "apologise for such a blunder". During the press conference, Atishi also spoke about outgoing BJP MP Harsh Vardhan's decision to bow out of electoral politics. Vardhan is known for his honesty and hard work for the country, the people of his parliamentary constituency and his assembly constituency, she said. "He always raised issues of public interest and spoke for them.
