The supremo of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said in an interview with the Hindustan Times that if they’ll win the Municipal Corporation elections, then they’ll fulfill all the promises made by the party. He also said that If BJP successfully retains the power, and then Prime Minister Modi Ji will not be engaged in improving the state. “The BJP is seeking votes only, and only, in the name of Modiji. I would like to tell people that Modiji is not going to run MCD… MCD will only be run by Kejriwal,” said Kejriwal in an interview with the Hindustan Times on Thursday.

Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party is debuting in the Delhi Municipal Corporation, and this election would be very important for the party as this will get to know where their party stands after 2 years of their government in the state. The National convener of AAP Arvind Kejriwal was arguing for the last two years that his party’s powers are just limited like an advisory as all his files go to the Lieutenant-Governor’s office for the clearance. He also said that “Under MCD rules…the House is Supreme.
Talking about his work, Kejriwal said that his government has ended up several mafias allegedly present in the state government like medicines, power, education, contractors and power, and they will end the hoarding, parking and contractors’ mafia in the MCD. The AAP National convener also said that the straight fight is between the BJP and AAP in this MCD election. He also shared solutions to the state issues like corruption, city’s civic mess, and some other serious issues. Kejriwal also said that no matter what the results would be, the Aam Aadmi Party will continue its fight against the EVMs.
While criticizing the opposite parties, Kejriwal said that as Congress in finished and BJP has always been unable to determine the issue of Delhi’s garbage problem, the Aam Aadmi Party is the best alternative for the people. “Any vote for BJP is a vote for filth and Chikungunya,” Kejriwal added. While praising the performance of his party’s two-year government in the state, he said that we have done what have said like free water, power rates halved potable water in taps, mohalla clinics, and revolutionary work in education, improved the conditions in hospitals, private schools not allowed to hike fees and much more.
In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Kejriwal said that we need to come together to clean Delhi. It’s the national capital and there’s so much filth. He said that the people of Delhi have the hope of cleaning only from the AAP. The Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal also criticized the Modi government for the Swacch Bharat slogan and said it was a very nice campaign, but the Delhi BJP miserably failed to even make the city clean. Kejriwal believes that only his party could make the city clean.
As the poll date is coming closer, all the parties are giving their best to win the municipal corporation elections in the national capital. In a recent interview with the Hindustan Times, Kejriwal also talked about his rapport with the new lieutenant-governor Anil Baijal. Kejriwal said that the L-G office had improved after the appointment of Baijal, but the relationship had soured in last 20 days. “Until the end of March; we had very pleasant interactions with the new L-G. He cleared several projects. Now all files go to the L-G — he is supreme, the elected government has almost become advisory,” Kejriwal added.
