Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari on Tuesday congratulated Arvind Kejriwal on his party’s victory in the Assembly elections and thanked the voters of the national capital. He also said that his party will review why it failed to meet its own expectations in the polls, though its vote share has increased since 2015.
“Thank you to all the voters of Delhi. Thank you to all the party workers for their hard work We respect the mandate of people. @ArvindKejriwal congratulations to you,” he posted on Twitter in Hindi.
Tiwari had asserted that his party will win more than 45 seats in the 70-member Assembly and form the government, and after the results came out showing a slight increase in BJP’s vote share, he saw it as a good sign.
“Delhi must have given mandate after careful thinking. Our vote percentage has increased from 32 per cent to around 38 per cent. Delhi did not reject us and the increase (in vote share) is a good sign for us,” he told reporters.
