Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal during an exclusive interview with NDTV's Barkha Dutt

New Delhi:  Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal Speaks to NDTV's Barkha Dutt ahead of Delhi's Assembly election scheduled for February 7. Here are the highlights of his discussion:

  • People of Delhi are confident that they have to vote AAP this time.
  • We will get between 45-50 seats this time.
  • Last time we faced disadvantage of a new party. We had to tell people we are also in the field. People doubted us.
  • This time people know only two parties in race - BJP, AAP.
  • Last time anti-incumbency against congress. This time pro- incumbency in favour of AAP.
  • Being in power for seven months the BJP has done nothing; In 49 days we had done much more.
  • Comparing Haryana and Maharashtra to Delhi is like comparing apples and oranges.
  • In those states the people had no option but to choose between BJP and Congress. In Delhi the Aam Aadmi Party has a presence.
  • People of Delhi have accepted our apology.
  • I have responded to "maidan chhod diya" allegation.
  • People know that Narendra Modi won't become chief minister. People want strong chief minister.
  • Who is main challenger? Jagdish Mukhi. Four senior BJP leaders called us and begged "make me your main rival".
  • 'Will submit proof against Delhi BJP chief today': AAP chief Kejriwal to NDTV on his allegations of corruption against Satish Upadhyay.
  • Do I look like a Naxal? It is not right to say such things. I urge them to focus on issues.
  • Shazia Ilmi is the only central AAP leader who left the party. Don't want to get into why she quit. I respect her.
  • I'm really fond of Shazia, I really like her. She should be happy wherever she is going. If she is going to the BJP, let her be happy.
  • Many members left us for the reason of tickets or post. Those who come for a post or a ticket should leave today. Such people should not join the Aam Aadmi Party.
  • Sheila Dikshit has conceded that her party (Congress) is losing.
  • I appeal to the people of Delhi not to waste their votes on Congress. The contest is between the BJP and Aam Aadmi Party.
