Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal today said the outcome of the recent Lok Sabha polls in Punjab showed that the people were disillusioned with the SAD-BJP government and exuded confidence his party would form the next government in the state.
The mandate given by the voters to the AAP in the recent Lok Sabha polls in Punjab amply showed that people were fed up with the ruling SAD-BJP regime, he told reporters here. The AAP bagged four Lok Sabha seats in Punjab without money power and would form the next government in the state, Kejriwal said. "In the next assembly polls in Punjab, the AAP will form the government," he said. His party would contest all the assembly seats in the state in the next elections, Kejriwal said.
Accusing the SAD-BJP combine of indulging in corrupt practices, he said it did nothing to solve the unemployment problem plaguing the state. "People have now found a better choice in the shape of AAP which has made a historic entry in Punjab," Kejriwal said. "I am thankful to the people of Punjab who had expressed their abundant faith in the AAP and sent its four candidates to Lok Sabha," he said.
On a senior Congress leader branding two AAP MPs as "naxalites", Kejriwal said "when somebody raises voice against injustice and corruption, then a few will start calling him a naxalite".
