Now AAP wants fresh election in Delhi
Wednesday May 21, 2014 10:45 AM, IANS

Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal Wednesday sought fresh election in Delhi.

Kejriwal said: "We have decided that we will prepare for the elections (in Delhi). We will go among the people."

The announcement comes just days after the Lok Sabha election got over. The AAP won four parliamentary seats in Punjab and did not win any Lok Sabha seat in Delhi, where the party had made a stunning debut in last year's assembly election.

The decision was taken after the meeting of AAP senior members with Kejriwal.

AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal Wednesday met senior party members at his residence here to discuss the party's future course of action on forming a government in Delhi.

The meeting started 9 a.m.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Tuesday told Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung that it wants to form the government in Delhi, and asked him not to dissolve the legislative assembly for a week.

In a letter to the Lt. Governor, AAP said it will hold public meetings in Delhi to obtain people's opinion on forming the government.

Kejriwal, who served as Delhi's chief minister for 49 days and quit Feb 14, said: "In the next 7-10 days, we will hold a number of meetings in Delhi...We will apologise to the people of Delhi and (seek) complete mandate so that we can form a government for five years."

The AAP won 28 of the 70-member Delhi assembly.
