He, in a motivating tone, told his party workers that these elections were between Rahul Gandhi vs Narendra Modi. People voted to elect a PM and not for AAP in these elections. ‘But the coming elections in Delhi is for us’, Kejriwal said while urging workers to prepare for Delhi State Workers.
Results of national polls came to AAP as a big setback who lost all 7 Lok Sabha Seats in the national capital. The party slips to the third spot in 5 seats while 3 of its candidate in the national capital lost their deposits.
AAP vote share came down drastically to 18%, which is 15% less than it got in 2014 national polls.
“In Delhi, we put up very good candidates, campaigned very well and all the workers worked hard. Public mandate on Sir Forehead. Will continue to work for the people of Delhi”, said Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal on May 23 after the results.
दिल्ली में हमने बहुत अच्छे उम्मीदवार खड़े किए, बहुत अच्छा प्रचार किया और सभी कार्यकर्ताओं ने कड़ी मेहनत की। जनता का जनादेश सर माथे पर। दिल्ली की जनता के लिए काम करते रहेंगे।
