Country to be run by ‘Jan Ki Baat’, not ‘Mann Ki Baat’: Uddhav Thackeray on AAP’s victory
Congratulating Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for Aam Aadmi Party’s victory in Delhi Assembly polls, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Tuesday said that Delhi voters have shown that country will be run by “Jan Ki Baat” and not “Mann Ki Baat”, a reference to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s monthly radio address.
“Kejriwal was termed as a terrorist. Instead of focusing on local issues, they (BJP) tried to bring in international issues and change people’s minds but failed. The people of Delhi have stood firmly behind Kejriwal for his honesty and willingness to work for their betterment,” Thackery said without taking BJP’s name.
The AAP appeared to be heading back to power in Delhi, with the party leading in 62 of the total 70 seats, and the BJP ahead in eight seats, according to the latest Election Commission figures.
“On behalf of Maharashtra and Shiv Sena, my heartiest congratulations to the people of Delhi and Kejriwal and we wish them the best of luck in their future development path,” Thackeray said.
