Mumbai: After the Aam Aadmi Party’s victory in four of the five municipal wards in New Delhi, AAP leader Manish Sisodia said on Wednesday that the result is a message for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and would later win the civic body elections in 2022.
Sisodia said, “The people of Delhi have reposed faith in us. They are fed up with the BJP and this election is an indication that the BJP will be eliminated in the 2022 Municipal Corporation elections.”
The Deputy Chief Minister also congratulated the party workers over the win and tweeted: “Congratulations to the Aam Aadmi Party workers on winning 4 out of 5 seats in the MCD by-election. The people of Delhi are now saddened by the BJP’s rule. In next year’s MCD election public will bring Arvind Kejriwal’s honest and working politics.”
एमसीडी उपचुनाव में 5 में से 4 सीटें जीतने पर आम आदमी पार्टी कार्यकर्ताओं को बधाई.
बीजेपी के शासन से दिल्ली की जनता अब दुखी हो चुकी है. अगले साल होने वाले MCD चुनाव में जनता @ArvindKejriwal जी की ईमानदार और काम करने वाली राजनीति को लेकर आएगी

“The people of Delhi once again voted in the name of work. Congratulations to all. People are now fed up with the misrule of the BJP for 15 years in the MCD. People are now desperate to form the Aam Aadmi Party government in the MCD as well,” Kejriwal tweeted.
दिल्ली के लोगों ने एक बार फिर से काम के नाम पर वोट दिया। सबको बधाई।
MCD में 15 साल के भाजपा के कुशासन से जनता परेशान हो चुकी है। लोग अब MCD में भी आम आदमी पार्टी की सरकार बनाने के लिए बेताब हैं। https://t.co/aIKthb13q2
