A day after Arvind Kejriwal stepped down as Delhi Chief Minister, Aam Aadmi Party on Saturday made it clear that it would contest the Lok Sabha polls under his leadership.
“…It is clear that Aam Aadmi Party will contest general elections under Kejriwal’s leadership across the country,” senior AAP leader Yogendra Yadav told reporters here.
Kerjriwal on Friday resigned as Delhi Chief Minister shortly after his government was defeated on the issue of tabling of the Janlokpal Bill in Delhi Assembly in the face of a united resistance by outside supporter Congress and BJP.

Congress and Opposition BJP said Kejriwal was never serious about governing and was looking for an excuse to “run away” to cover up his “failure” to deliver on his commitments.
The BJP also made it clear that the party would seek fresh elections in Delhi and was ready for it rather than form an alternative government since it did not have the required numbers in the state Assembly.
Ahead of the meeting of Political Affair Committee (PAC), AAP leader and former PWD minister Manish Sisodia said the LG
should dissolve the Assembly as recommended by the Cabinet because it was based on a decision of majority government.
When asked about the agenda of the meeting, party leader Yogendra Yadav said the main focus of the meeting is to analyse the circumstances after Delhi government’s resignation on Friday.
“We will focus on party’s strategy and also analysis the situation after Delhi Government’s decision of quitting for the Jan Lokpal Bill,” Yadav said.
