Will focus on Delhi in next 5-10 years: Kejriwal
New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal, the man who last governed Delhi, says he believes he can earn a second chance from the capital in the next election, which is likely to be held early next year.
"I have learnt my lesson, I will never resign again," joked Kejriwal, who controversially quit as Chief Minister in February after a 49-day term in office when his anti-graft proposal was blocked by other parties.
Talking to NDTV, Kejriwal, wearing his trademark white cap, said that his main political opponent in Delhi, the BJP, is constructing "an artificial battle" to make the Delhi election seem like a face-off between him and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. "They are trying to do fraud on the people of Delhi....Modi will not run the city, it will be handed over to somebody else," he said.The BJP has declared that its campaign will not reveal a presumptive Chief Minister. Instead, the PM will ask the city to support him, a strategy that proved to be of exceptional worth in the recent state elections in Maharashtra and Haryana, where his party won historic results. Kejriwal also said that he will focus on Delhi for the next five to 10 years and any decision on fighting elections in other states will be taken only after people's mandate in the capital.
