Delhi polls victory a win for entire India: Kejriwal

  • AAP leader vowed to continue working on the promises made
  • AAP is leading in 63 out of 70 seats

New Delhi: After scripting yet another success story, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday vowed to continue working on the promises made.

Thanking the state for the party's victory in the assembly elections, Kejriwal said residents of Delhi had voted for their "son".

According to the Election Commission of India, AAP has managed a decisive win and is leading in 63 out of 70 seats.

“I want to thank every resident of Delhi for giving us a third chance. This is a win for Delhi and for every resident who voted for me thinking of me as their son. It is a win for every family who now gets 24 hour electricity, good education," Kejriwal said, addressing party volunteers and media at the party headquarters.

Kejriwal said, like the way AAP had worked for the people of Delhi over the last five years, two crore residents will work to make Delhi a better city in the next five years.

This is the second consecutive election where the AAP has managed a clear mandate from Delhi. The party had contested this election banking on the work done by the government in the last five years.

“The people of Delhi have given the message that they want -- politics over work. They have said that they will vote for the government which gives mohalla clinics, provides water, makes roads. This is a new kind of politics... This is the same politics that will take our country to the 21st century. This is not just a win for Delhi but for the entire country," he added.
