Winning 67 of 70 seats was god’s grace: Arvind Kejriwal
Even as his government stares at the possibility of losing 20 seats in the coming days, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal thanked god for the mandate of 67 seats AAP won in 2015.
“I have always said it was God’s grace. He also knew that after three years, these people would declare 20 of our MLAs disqualified. That’s why he gave us 67 seats out of 70 in the Delhi Assembly polls,” Kejriwal said on Sunday after inaugurating sewer lines in Najafgarh.
On EC’s recommendation to President Ram Nath Kovind, Kejriwal said, "Disqualification of 20 MLAs of AAP was BJP’s last resort after all tricks failed. They let CBI loose on me which searched my house and office for 24 hours. They found nothing but four mufflers. The Delhi Lieutenant Governor seized all our files for four months, but did not find anything out of order. When they failed, they disqualified our MLAs."
The party has decided to hold a day-long bandh on Tuesday to protest against Centre’s move allowing 100 per cent retail in FDI and the ongoing sealing drive in the Capital.
