Don't become arrogant: Kejriwal tells supporterstext_fields
New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal Tuesday cautioned party members against becoming "arrogant" as the party headed for a historic victory in the Delhi assembly polls.
In his first public comments after the election results showed the AAP heading for a landslide in Delhi's assembly elections, Kejriwal described it as "a victory for truth and honesty".
"This is a victory of people... This is a victory of truth and honesty," Kejriwal said as supporters shouted "Panch Saal Kejriwal" (Kejriwal for five years).
"When you walk on the path of truth, powers of the universe help you," said Kejriwal.
Addressing thousands of cheering supporters at the AAP office in central Delhi, Kejriwal said an Aam Aadmi Party government would work "in a manner that both the poor and the rich would be proud of Delhi".
The 46-year-old then introduced his wife Sunita to the frenzied crowds chanting "Paanch Saal Kejriwal!" slogans and waving hundreds of party flags and brooms -- the AAP election symbol.
"This is my wife," he said, putting his arm around her shoulders. And as she folded her hands in greeting triggering a roar, he added: "I would have never been able to work if she had not supported me."
He warned the supporters against becoming arrogant.
"The defeat that BJP is facing is because of their arrogance," said Kerjwial.
"If we become arrogant, people will teach us the same lesson," he warned party members.
He also sought the support of people of Delhi.
"I cannot do anything alone, I am a little man. If two crore people of Delhi work together, we can make Delhi a city of which both rich and poor will be proud of," he said.
