Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal has conceded defeat following his party’s poor show in state assembly elections. Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, the Delhi chief minister said, Honour People’s verdict, all our party members worked hard, our struggle will continue(Janata Ka faisla sar aankhon par sabhi karyakartaon ne bahut mehnat ki, Sangharsh Jaari Rahega).
As per the latest trends Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party is leading on 24 seats in Punjab while it failed to gain a single seat in Goa. Congress is leading on 74 seats in Punjab and BJP and Congress are in a neck to neck fight in Goa. Interestingly the party was claiming a landslide victory in both the states.
जनता का फ़ैसला सर माथे पे। सभी कार्यकर्ताओं ने बहुत मेहनत की। संघर्ष जारी रहेगा।
