Kejriwal admits Delhi exit was ill-timed
New Delhi, April 11: After leaving Delhiites in the lurch, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal has finally admitted that resigning from Delhi was indeed a 'mistake.'

In an interview to The Economic Times (read here), Kejriwal said that he his resignation was ill-timed and that it was a mistake due to which the party suffers a communication gap with the poeple.

However Kejriwal did defend his decision to quit and said that 'his decision to quit was based on principle.' He said: "I think we should have taken a few more days to hold public meetings to explain the rationale behind our decision and then quit."

Kejriwal said that AAP's decision to quit was a chance for the BJP and the Congress to label the party as 'escapists.' "AAP will have to be more careful in future," he said.

Speaking about the Lok Sabha election Kejriwal said that the BJP would not win more than 180 seats and that Modi won't be India's PM. He said that AAP would defeat both Narendra Modi from Varanasi and Rahul Gandhi from Amethi.

"We will win the two seats that will change the political discourse of the country: Amethi and Varanasi. If BJP wins over 200 seats, but loses Varanasi, do you think that victory will hold any meaning for the party?

Similarly, Congress' loss in Amethi will spell doom for its leadership even if it manages to emerge as the single largest party," Kejriwal said.
