Interacting with the residents of his New Delhi Assembly constituency, Arvind Kejriwal said “the BJP MPs in Delhi did nothing except creating hurdles in the work of the AAP government.” The donation campaign Aap Ka Daan, Rashtra Ka Nirman was launched by Kejriwal last Monday.

The CM looked confident of winning all seven parliamentary seats in Delhi which he lost in 2014. Arvind Kejriwal l, however, ruled out the possibility of contesting general elections or being part of the ‘Mahagathbandhan’ for the big battle in 2019.

While speaking to India Today during his door-to-door campaign Kejriwal said, “It will be a fourmonth campaign and we want to reach every Delhi household.” During this door-to-door campaign, Kejriwal focused on his government’s schemes in Delhi particularly in the fields of education, health, electricity and water

“People were happy with the work done by the Delhi government and they will give donations and votes to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP),” he said. Kejriwal’s cabinet colleagues, including deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, MPs and MLAs, along with AAP workers, also took to the streets, visiting people in various parts of the city seeking donations and votes for the party.

The campaign will go on for four months, with around 3,000 AAP workers going door to door in all the seven Parliamentary constituencies in Delhi. Kejriwal said it was immaterial for Delhi as to who became the next prime minister, adding that if the AAP won any Lok Sabha seat in the national capital, it would get work done with whosoever was in power at the Centre.

“We will tell people not to get concerned about who becomes the next prime minister. The BJP MPs did nothing for Delhi. By the way, nobody knows who will be the next prime minister. All (parties) are in a poor shape,” he said. The AAP, which has already announced party in-charges for all the seven Lok Sabha constituencies, intends to go to the voters asking for votes by claiming that its government has achieved excellent

results in health, education, water and power supplies. Issues like the Delhi Metro fare hike, alleged failures of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MPs and the ongoing sealing drive in the city are also likely to

be raised during the campaign. The New Delhi assembly constituency, which elected Kejriwal as MLA twice is the AAP’s strong hold. Locals were happy to see Delhi CM knocking on their doors but also extended support from assurance to making contribution
