New Delhi: All seven parliamentary seats in the national capital were grabbed by the Bharatiya Janata Party in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) have failed to win a single seat in Delhi. Even after massive defeat, party chief Arvind Kejriwal is confident that the referendum was not against the party, which has been ruling Delhi since 2015.
Kejriwal on Sunday said that there was no negativity against AAP among voters in Delhi and that they had not voted for the party in the national elections because Polls was the fight between PM Narendra Modi and Congress president Rahul Gandhi.
AAp Supremo said, “There was no negativity against AAP in Delhi. Many people said, ‘It is a big election, the election of Rahul (Gandhi) ji and (Narendra) Modi ji. It isn't Kejriwal's election, let your election come and we will vote for you based on your work.”
Earlier today, Kejriwal addressed party volunteers in the national capital where he asked them to not get "disheartened" for AAP's loss in the general elections. He stated that in the Delhi Assembly elections, which are due in 2020, the electorate will vote for "work not name."
In the 2019 polls, AAP placed third - behind BJP and Congress - with just 18 per cent votes across Delhi.
