New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh on Sunday expressed confidence that his party under the leadership of Arvind Kejriwal will retain power in the national capital with a majority as projected by the exit polls.
“We should wait till the counting starts but looking at the exit polls, I am sure that Arvind Kejriwal led AAP is coming back with a majority. It is for the first time after independence that people have voted based on developmental works carried out here,” Sanjay told ANI.
The AAP leader added that the citizens of Delhi have given an answer to those who were trying to spread hatred and violence across the national capital.
“If this tradition continues in other states as well, we can move towards forming a healthy democracy. BJP lives in a denial mode and it doesn’t matter what BJP is saying, what matter is the voice of Delhi. BJP doesn’t have any poll issue to fight on, they are fighting just for the sake of it,” he added.
“In 2015, when the results of exit polls came in our favour even the BJP had denied it. They just want to spread rumours till the end,” he added.
Singh further asserted that the Indian economy is surely in the “ICU” as all the parameters of Indian Economy are seeing a major slowdown.
“If the trend of developmental politics starts across India, the accountability of Politicians will be set. We will continue to work for the development of Delhi as promised in our Manifesto,”
As Delhi elections concluded on Saturday evening, the exit polls predicted that AAP will win a two-thirds majority with some giving it a three-fourth majority in the 70-member assembly. They predicted that Congress will continue its dismal show in the national capital.
