In an interview to PTI, Kejriwal said these elections will establish a new kind of politics in the country which is the politics based on work.

“Earlier, it used to be said that votes are not cast based on work done by the government. If you want to get votes you need to establish your vote bank based on caste and religion,” he said.

“My vote bank are all those people who want to give good education to their children, who want good medical treatment, who want roads to be constructed in front of their houses, those who want 24-hour electricity are my vote bank,” he said.

Throughout the election campaign, Kejriwal has maintained that the assembly elections in Delhi will be fought on the basis of the AAP government’s work.

The assembly elections will be held on February 8 in Delhi which will witness a triangular contest among the ruling AAP, the BJP and the Congress.
