No referendum, AAP wants fresh elections in Delhi
New Delhi, May 21: AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday demanded fresh elections be conducted in Delhi to elect new government. The party chief met senior party members at his residence here to discuss the party's future course of action on forming a government in Delhi.

The party also apologised for 'bailing out' early from Delhi. "We quit on politics, not impulse", said Kejriwal. "People want us to form government, else they will not forgive us", said Kejriwal.

"We realize that people are unhappy that we resigned from the Delhi Vidhan Sabha. During the 49 days, we had halved the power rates, brought down the rate of corruption. After we were forced to leave, the power rates were hiked again and the police went back to taking bribes. This time we will start afresh, we will win and we will stay in government to work for the people", said the leader.

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.
