"In this election it was a referendum on Arvind Kejriwal. That's how people of Delhi saw it. I think people have certainly voted for Kejriwal. It was a referendum of AAP's 49 days in office and its performance. People felt they should be given a chance," he said.
The AAP was on course to create history as it was ahead in 57 seats out of total 70. The BJP was ahead in only 12 seats while Congress was at 0 as per latest trends.
