Arvind Kejriwal explains why resigning after 49 days was a mistake, his second bid, and why Delhi should vote for his party again.
In the one year that has passed since, many things have changed. This December, the Aam Aadmi Party faces a future-defining election.
Kejriwal was the guest at the Express Adda in Mumbai on Friday evening.
Promises them better education, more jobs, better sports facilities, free WiFi and drug-free city.
Nine months after resigning as Delhi CM, Kejriwal faces another election, but the challenges have mounted.
Asked why party fielded Bharti who is facing serious charges, AAP maintained that the former Law Minister was innocent.
In the assembly polls held in December last year, AAP had won 28 seats in its debut performance.
The expelled AAP MLA did not clarify whether he was going to contest from a BJP ticket.
Sources said AAP has decided not to give tickets to six former legislators.
The former Delhi chief minister also said volunteers should work “to expose the real design of the BJP”.
Kejriwal said AAP was ‘fully ready’ to take the electoral plunge and identified BJP as its main opponent.
Kejriwal said that quitting govt after the 49-day rule was the ‘biggest mistake’ of his political career.
The AAP has been heavily dependent on individual donors from across the country.
Asked if he would also be contesting elections, Upadhyay said the party would decide.
On whether he will contest from the New Delhi constituency, Kejriwal said the party will take a decision on the issue.
