After the humiliating defeat in all the 7 seats in New Delhi, CM Arvind Kejriwal asked party workers to humbly accept the defeat and concentrate on the assembly polls which is scheduled for next year.
I am proud of party Workers to accept the defeat: AAP President
Kejriwal addressed the party workers in Punjabi Bagh and said that the anti-corruption fighter has said to him that if someone comes in politics, he/she should be ready to accept the loss and endure humiliation. “We have gone through these defeats many times but I am proud of my party workers who have always accepted the humiliation calmly”, added Arvind Kejriwal.
Kejriwal wants people of Delhi to vote for ‘Kaam’ rather than ‘Naam’
He said ”Now you go and tell the people of Delhi that small election is coming after the completion of the big election. Tell them to cast their vote on work not just on the name” He added “We are still the same honest the way we were on 26th November 2013 when the party was formed”
Party expected to win two seats
Party was expecting to win at least two seats in the Lok Sabha Election. They were working hard on two seats of East Delhi and South Delhi. Atishi was up against the BJP candidate former Indian Cricketer Gautam Gambhir in East Delhi and Raghav Chadha was fighting against Ramesh Bidhuri from BJP in South Delhi. Atishi came 3rd with 219328 votes while Congress candidate Arvinder Singh Lovely got 304934. Gautam Gambhir won the seat by accumulating 696156 votes. Raghav Chadha brought 319971 votes which fell short from Ramesh Bidhuri’s 687014 votes.
AAP got 67 seats in the last assembly election held in 2015 when nobody expected them to cross 50. Winning 70 from 67 seats was historic which paved way for the second term as Delhi’s Chief Minister for Arvind Kejriwal.
