Gave tough fight to BJP in Delhi; people of country voted against hatred, dictatorship: AAP


New Delhi, Jun 4: AAP on Tuesday said despite adverse circumstances, their candidates gave a tough fight to the BJP in Delhi while asserting that the people have voted against the saffron party's of “hatred and dictatorship”.

Trends of the Lok Sabha poll results on Tuesday threw up disappointing results for the BJP-led NDA, which appears to be losing big in its strongholds of Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan, although it is expected to form the government with about 290 seats.

However, of the seven Lok Sabha constituencies in Delhi, the BJP has won the Chandni Chowk and South Delhi seats while it is leading in the remaining five, with three of its candidates ahead by a margin of more than one lakh votes.

Addressing a press conference here, AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh said, “I want to bow down before the country's voters. Today, the election results are coming in. The picture is becoming clearer.

“These elections are a message from the public that they are tired of the 10-year rule of BJP and want to oust them. They are tired of inflation. It is the beauty of 's democracy that people have said to the BJP to go back,” he said.

With the BJP appearing to fall short of the majority mark of 272, Singh said, “The results are a big lesson for the BJP and its politics of hatred and dictatorship. If the prime minister has the least bit of morality, he should step down for giving the slogan of 400 paar.”

Singh said that the INDIA bloc will meet soon to decide on the future strategy.

Talking about the party's poll performance, AAP Delhi state convener Gopal Rai said, “We contested the polls in adverse circumstances. In Delhi, we gave a strong fight to BJP and the margins are narrower this time (as compared to 2019).”

Rai said BJP's partners — N Chandrababu Naidu of the TDP and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of the JD(U) will have a crucial role to play. He also highlighted that the duo had opposed Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the past.

“The people of the country expect Chandrababu Naidu and Nitish Kumar to take the right decision at the right time and listen to their call to end dictatorship in the country,” he said.

The senior AAP leader thanked the people for participating in the festival of democracy and for “completely smashing” the predictions of exit polls.

Rai said the voters have given the message that they are against the BJP's dictatorship and its policies that led to inflation and unemployment.

“The BJP thought that the party (AAP) would end after arresting Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain in Delhi. Everyone used to ask us how we would fight the elections and who would campaign.

“But even under such adverse circumstances, all the workers of the AAP gave a tough fight to the BJP in Delhi with their rock-solid unity. The BJP's margin in Delhi is going to reduce on a large scale,” Rai said.
