Kejriwal confident of winning elections
New Delhi, Dec 2: With just two days to go for the Delhi assembly elections, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor, Arvind Kejriwal is all geared up and boasting with confidence.

In an interveiw to The Hindu [read full interview here], he says that the response the party is receiving is over whelming and is increasing each day.

"Have you ever seen such kind of roadshow in the New Delhi constituency?" he asks. He will be contesting elections from the New Delhi constituency and will go in a neck-to-neck competition with Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit and former BJP chief Vijender Gupta.

Kejriwal: Sheila Dikshit will lose by a huge margin

Hitting out at Dikshit he says that people from this constituency complain that Dikshit doesn't even visit the area. "Looking at the suppport that AAP has got, I do not have any hesitation in saying that she will lose by a huge margin," he says confidently.

Speaking about Narendra Modi, who attacked Kejriwal in his speech on Sunday he said: "Rajneeti bayaanbazi se nahi balki zameeni muddhon se hoti hai (Politics is not just about catchy slogans but grassroot issues). Those who make such statements should see the people's support that we are getting," he said.

Speaking about the Modi factor he says that Modi won't be a factor at all. "Mr Modi cannot wash away the corrupt image of the BJP leaders," he said.

Kejriwal, who is optimistic of the poll result says that there is no question of hung assembly at all. "We will form the government," he said.
