AAP should not fight Haryana, Maharashtra polls: Kejriwal
cancel

New Delhi: AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal Saturday said the party should not contest assembly elections in Haryana and Maharashtra, and underlined the need to focus in Delhi.

In an interaction with party's Delhi volunteers on Google Hangout, Kejriwal said: "The Aam Aadmi Party should not fight Haryana and Maharashtra assembly elections. We should use all resources and volunteers in Delhi."

In May, IANS had reported that the fledgling party would not contest in Haryana owing to its dismal performance in the Lok Sabha elections in the state.

Polls are slated in Haryana and Maharashtra later this year, while Delhi has been under presidential rule since Feb 17 after Kejriwal resigned as the chief minister over the stalling of the Jan Lokpal bill in the assembly.

While in Haryana, none of its 10 candidates could get 100,000 votes and lost their security deposit, Maharashtra was no better with the party losing all 28 Lok Sabha seats it contested out of the state's 48.

In Delhi too, the AAP failed to win even a single seat. However, it stood second in all the seven seats.

No party in the capital, where the assembly is under suspended animation, has staked claim to form the government and this might pave the way for fresh elections.
