NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister and AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday motivated party workers to not get disheartened by their defeat in the Lok Sabha elections and added they should look forward to the Delhi Assembly elections which are slated to take place next year.
Kejriwal said he is confident of getting more than 54 per cent vote share, which the party received in the last Delhi Assembly elections.
Last Delhi Assembly polls, AAP had won 67 out of 70 seats.
"People gave votes based on PM face thinking it was a national election and not one for AAP. But now it is time to go to them saying this here is the state election now and we must vote not on a name but on the basis of work done," Kejriwal said.
He urged the AAP volunteers to go to the people of Delhi and ask them: “If Delhi had elected a BJP state government four years ago, would schools have been transformed? would mohalla clinics have been made? would doorstep delivery be started?”
Kejriwal also congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi for winning a second term and hoped that the Central government would work in good faith with the state government for the betterment of Delhi.
