Aam Aadmi Party leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal took to Twitter on Saturday morning and reacted to his party’s embarrassing defeat in the recently concluded MCD elections. He posted a long message on his Twitter handle saying that his party made mistakes but will introspect and course correct. “In the last 2 days, I spoke to many volunteers and voters. The reality is obvious. Yes, we made mistakes but will introspect and course correct. Time to go back to drawing board. To not evolve would be silly,” he wrote.

Kejriwal also emphasized that after the loss, party needs action and not excuses. “Need is action and not excuses. It’s time to get back to work. And even if we slip from time to time, the key is to find the reserves to hold and pull ourselves up. The people deserve nothing else. The only thing constant is change.”

However, BJP believes that a civil war is going on within the Aam Aadmi Party. “It seems like there is a civil war within the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and there seems to be some eruption within. People are finally venting out what they had been wanting to say. My only question is, why didn’t these leaders speak when Arvind Kejriwal said the same things about the EVMs post Punjab elections? It’s very easy to attack him now. They are opportunists of the worst kind,” Shazia Ilmi told ANI.
Another BJP leader RP Singh told ANI, “Kumar Vishwas has realised it late but what he has said is correct. The EVMs are not faulty, but the leadership is. The questions, which he has raised, are right. I hope they will not show doors to Kumar Vishwas, as they did to Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan, for raising such similar genuine questions.”
