BH CORRESPONDENT, Kolkata: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee congratulated Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP’s) chief Arvind Kejriwal for winning the Delhi election yet again. She said the leaders who deliver on their promises are “rewarded”. This year, AAP fought Delhi’s assembly election on their governance model mainly on the issues of health, power, water and education.
“Congratulations @ArvindKejriwal as #DelhiResults show @AamAadmiParty all set to win #DelhiElection2020 with a thumping majority yet again. Leaders playing on faith through hate speech & divisive politics should take a cue, as only those who deliver on their promises are rewarded,” tweeted Mamata. Mamata and Kejriwal have always shared a cordial relationship.
Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan also congratulated Kejriwal and said let this victory be a harbinger for inclusive politics in the country. “Congratulations to @ArvindKejriwal and @AamAadmiParty on a resounding victory in Delhi elections. Let this victory be a harbinger for pro-people and inclusive politics in our country,” he posted.
DMK chief MK Stalin also took to Twitter to congratulate AAP founder, who is on his way to form Delhi government for the third time. Stalin said Kejriwal’s win is a clear vindication that development trumps communal politics.
“I congratulate @ArvindKejriwal and @AamAadmiParty for forming government yet again in Delhi,on a massive mandate. This is clear vindication that development trumps communal politics. Federal rights and regional aspirations must be strengthened in the interest of our country,” Stalin tweeted.
Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav congratulated Kejriwal and thanked the Delhiites for rejecting the politics of destruction and hate.
