The Bharatiya Janata Party has lapped up the golden opportunity of using AAP Minister Satyendar Jain’s leaked massage videos from Tihar jail to attract public attention and setting the agenda before Delhi Municipality and Gujarat Assembly elections.

The saffron party has launched a massive offline and online poster war against AAP mocking Jain’s alleged “five-star lifestyle” in jail.

BJP which is fighting anti-incumbency in Delhi having ruled MCD for over 15 years wasn’t going to let go of this opportunity. Overnight BJP came up with multiple posters showing Kejriwal running a spa center from Tihar, and giving massage to Jain. Laden with sarcasm, these posters try to excite a chuckle while driving home the fact that AAP, after all, is not different from other parties.

In addition to that, BJP leaders who go by the name “Namo Cyber Yoddhas” today held a unique demonstration thanking CM Kejriwal for turning Delhi in to Thailand.  Thailand is known as a global massage paradise.

“It seems like Kejriwal has given a clean chit to Satyendar Jain.  This was supposed to be a party for the Aam Aadmi and here a supposed aam aadmi is being given khaas treatment even in jail. This is the true face of this party. Under AAP’s rule, in Delhi’s Tihar jail corrupt people will not get saza(punishment), they will be given maalish (massage) and maza (fun)” said Shehzad Poonawala, BJP’s National spokesperson. He was leading the protest outside BJP’s Delhi office.

“The truth is hidden in Kejriwal’s silence. Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain are Kejriwal’s right hand and left hand. One is accused in liquor excise policy, and other in hawala kand. Jain’s bail has been rejected several times. Is the court also biased ? Is the Indian constitution biased? Is that why Kejriwal is turning jail into a five-star facility for his ministers, asked BJP’s national media in-charge Ajay Sehrawat.

On Saturday, multiple viral videos of Jain getting body massage created a political storm in the national capital. AAP on its part has failed to take hold of the narrative. Its defence that Jain was undergoing physiotherapy for his spinal injury has done it more harm than good, making it the butt of many memes and the target of Physiotherapy Association.

While the election for the 250-ward Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) will be held on 4th December  and the results will be declared on December 7, 2022, Gujarat Assembly polls will be held in two phases on 1st and 5th December, giving very little breathing space for a new party like AAP to divide their attention between these two crucial locations.

Only time will tell whether the poster war would yield the desired result for BJP in the upcoming MCD elections, but as of now the concerted effort by all BJP party workers, and their cornering of AAP on the Satyendar Jain issue has put CM Arvind Kejriwal’s party under the spot. It has also forced the party to use all its resources in firefighting in the national capital and loosen its campaign grip on Gujarat where it is going to contest its first election.
