Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal quit the post as he was unable to fulfil promises he made to people before assembly polls, Union Minister Shriprakash Jaiswal said today. “Since the time Kejriwal took charge as Chief Minister, he had been trying to quit the post as he knew he was unable to fulfil promises he made to people before polls,” Jaiswal told reporters on the sidelines of a function.

“Had Kejriwal tried to resolve the stalemate over Jan Lokpal bill, he would have requested the Lieutenant Governor for getting approval for the bill from Union government, but he did not talk about it,”  he said.

Jaiswal said that Kejriwal had no option other than to quit. When asked about Aam Aadmi Party’s impact on Congress in upcoming Lok Sabha polls, he said democracy provides right to fight an election to everyone. Whoever wants to be a leader, can fight an election, Jaiswal said.
