Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal, who was claiming to be winning all seven seats in Delhi, seems to be have conceded defeat after polling in Delhi on May 12.
The Delhi Chief Minister was banking on the hope, that his party would get a big chunk of Muslim votes, which is more than 12% in the national capital. However, in his latest interaction with the media, Kejriwal has said:
“The minority community’s votes shifted to the Congress at the last minute before polling.”
One of the founding member of Aam Aadmi Party and as a sitting Chief minister in Delhi for past four and a half years, Kejriwal is not confident of winning his own state. While campaigning in Punjab’s Rajpura, The Indian Express questioned him on the number of seats he would win, out of seven in Delhi, to which Kejriwal responded:
“Let us see what happens. Actually, chunaav ke 48 ghante pehle tak saaton seat lag raha tha Aam Aadmi Party ko aayengi. Last moment pe complete Muslim vote got shifted to Congress. Last night, the night before election. We are trying to figure out ki hua kya hai. Poora ka poora Muslim vote jo hai woh Congress ko shift ho gaya. They are 12-13 per cent.”
(Until 48 hours before polling, it seemed like all seven seats will come to AAP. But at the last moment, the complete Muslim vote got shifted to Congress. We are trying to figure out what happened).
AAP is contesting all 13 seats in the state, which votes on May 19.
