Hattrick for Arvind Kejriwal, praises Delhi for a new kind of politics
New Delhi : With yet another win in the Delhi Assembly Elections, Arvind Kejriwal scored a hattrick and proved that his idea of politics is getting full marks from the residents of Delhi.
“You are amazing… I love you,” Kejriwal said, throwing a kiss at his supporters right at the beginning of his brief address to supporters at the AAP office.
At the time when he came out to thank his supporters, the Election Commission was showing that they are leading on 63 out of 70 seats in the national capital. It was close to the 67 seats that his party had won five years earlier.
He started his speech by showing gratitude to the people of Delhi for giving AAP yet another chance to serve the national capital.
"I want to thank the families of Delhi who treated me as your son and voted for us," Kejriwal said, a reference to how he had referred to himself through much of AAP’s campaign to blunt attacks on him by BJP leaders who called him a terrorist and a naxalite.
Arvind Kejriwal had heavily campaigned about his party's achievements in last five years, including better education and medical facilities.
"It is a message that Delhi will vote those who build schools, mohalla clinics, give cheap power, provide access to water and build roads… This is a new kind of politics and holds an auspicious message for the country," he said in his victory speech that he had started with cries of “Bharat Mata ki Jai”.
"Only this kind of politics can take India ahead in the 21st century… It is not just Delhi’s victory but also a win for Bharat mata (the country)," he said, standing next to his wife Sunita Kejriwal and his children who had joined him on the campaign trail.
