Arvind Kejriwal also said, “People were so upset with BJP’s 15-year work in MCD that they gave them 0 (seats). MCD has only spread trash in Delhi, so corrupt that people call it “Most Corrupt Department”. By voting AAP, people now want good work in MCD too.”
He stated, “In 2015, we won 67/70 seats, in 2020, we won 62/70 seats and now in MCD by-polls, by giving us 4/5 seats, people want us to continue.”
Of the five MCD wards where bypolls were held on February 28, AAP has won four and the Congress one.
The AAP convener said people wanted a change in the three municipal corporations in Delhi and advised the newly elected councillors to work honestly and with humility.
