Amid mocking from BJP, Kejriwal admits AAP committed mistakes
New Delhi, April 29: After a defeat in Municipal Corporation of Delhi polls recently, Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal struck a note on Saturday admitting that the party made some crucial mistakes such as in-fighting within the party.
In his letter to the people, Kejriwal had said that he had spoken to the leaders, volunteers, and voters and added that the party had committed mistakes.
He said that the party will now focus on the work to be done and bring a change instead of excuses.
Kejriwal asserted that it's time to get back to work. Just a day before the MCD polls countings, Kejriwal had warned to launch a movement if the exit polls predicting BJP clean sweep comes true.

Just after conceding defeat in MCD polls, two of the AAP leaders blamed the Electronic Voting Machines for their loss. Delhi Labour Minister Gopal Rai had said that the Bharatiya Janata Party had won because of EVM lehar, not because of Modi lehar.
Following Kumar Vishwas doubts over Kejriwal, BJP said that the civil war is within the AAP and not with the saffron party.
The former AAP leader Shazia llmi had accused Kumar Vishwas as an 'opportunist' for raising voice after AAP's defeat and not when the party was defeated in Punjab elections.
It is reminded that Vishwas on Friday raised doubts about AAP supremo's ability to win elections and had suggested that the party should do sole-searching for the consecutive defeats.
He hinted that the party should call for taking drastic steps even for leadership change if it wants to win the elections hereafter.
He also raised a question on Kejriwal's defense on Punjab, Rajouri by-polls and MCD polls defeats.
Kumar had said that Kejriwal's stand on surgical strikes was wrong.
Just after the MCD polls, the party also received another blow as its leaders such as Alka Lamba, Sanjay Singh resigned from posts.
According to reports, AAP MLAs in Punjab are likely to quit the party and might join the left parties or the ruling Congress in the state.
