New Delhi, Jan 22: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday appealed to the people of Delhi to vote for the real development of the national capital, instead of voting in favor of a political party in the upcoming Assembly elections.
Addressing thousands of party supporters in a roadshow held in Badli and Adarsh Nagar constituencies, Mr Kejriwal said, "The last five years have gone well. We have improved the lives of people in the last five years. In these times of inflation and static incomes, I know the plight of a common man when he has to pay the school fees of his children and arrange for finances for his family.
"We have tried to transform the lives of people and make them prosperous, in the last five years. We have done a lot of work in the last five years, provided free electricity and water, improved the infrastructure of schools, hospitals and roads. The work that was pending for 70 years, cannot be completed in just five years," he said.
"It is my appeal to the people of Delhi to not let anything obstruct the development of Delhi," he said.
Mr Kejriwal also said that the upcoming assembly elections in Delhi are different from the Lok Sabha elections and all people should vote for the development of Delhi.
Kejriwal was accompanied by Badli MLA candidate Ajesh Yadav and Adarsh Nagar MLA candidate Pawan Kumar.
The Delhi elections are scheduled to be held on February 8. The counting of votes will take place on February 11.
The Delhi Assembly Election 2020 will witness a triangular contest among AAP, BJP and Congress.
In 2015 elections, AAP won 67 seats, while the BJP got the rest three and the Congress drew a blank. (UNI)
