SummaryArvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party expressed confidence of winning all the seven parliamentary seats in Delhi

As the campaigning in the capital ended today for April 10 Lok Sabha elections, Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) expressed confidence of winning all the seven parliamentary seats in Delhi.

"We will sweep the elections. We are confident of winning all the seven seats in Delhi," said AAP spokesperson and Secretary, Selection Committee, Dileep Pandey.

The party that drew criticism from some sections after its chief Arvind Kejriwal resigned as Chief Minister of the capital earlier this year, dismissed suggestions that there was "anti-Kejriwal" mood in the capital and claimed that the party will pull out maximum votes.

"The moment Arvind Kejriwal started his rallies and roadshows on the ground from March 31, we are getting immense support from people. There is no anti-Kejriwal mood anywhere. We are confident of sweeping the Delhi elections by winning all the seven seats," said Pandey at a press conference.

Slamming Congress and BJP for holding "pan Delhi rallies" with no "connect with the people", Pandey said that the growing support for AAP can be gauged by social media.

"We do not believe in organising extravagant rallies. Our roadshows and Jan Sabhas are short and focused. One can sense the mood of the nation in favour of our party by the numerous photographs that get uploaded on social media. We believe in knowing the pulse of the people," Pandey claimed.

"BJP is losing ground and Congress is not even in the fight," he added.

Pandey also took a dig at Congress leader Ajay Maken who is contesting against AAP's candidate Ashish Khetan from New Delhi constituency.

"We got to know that Ajay Maken could not meet the eyes of the people while holding a rally at Ramesh Nagar. People wanted to talk to him which he conveniently avoided," he said.

"We won't be deterred by anyone," Pandey reacted to the attack on Arvind Kejriwal by an auto rickshaw driver at the Sultanpuri area today.
