According to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the Congress won the Karnataka assembly elections by making similar promises to the Aam Aadmi Party in its election programme, including free energy, free rations, and jobless benefits.
He claimed that because other parties are now vying for votes on areas like education and health, the AAP has succeeded in changing the political discourse in the nation.
He was speaking to AAP leaders who had just won local body seats in Uttar Pradesh.
According to the polls in Karnataka, the Congress party won on our manifesto, despite the Aam Aadmi Party’s efforts to alter the political narrative in the nation, Kejriwal claimed.
“We claimed we would provide free electricity, and they (Congress) also said so,” he said. “We said we would provide jobless benefits, free rations, and Rs 1,000 per month to women.
He added that political parties in the past used to solicit votes based on caste and religion, but that the BJP is now making similar promises.
The urban local body elections, which were held in Uttar Pradesh in two phases on May 4 and May 11, saw the AAP win multiple wards as well as three Nagar Palika chairperson positions, six Nagar Panchayat chairperson posts, and six Nagar Nigam councillor seats.
According to poll findings posted on the website of the state election commission, the minority community was represented by more than half of the AAP’s successful candidates.
Kejriwal expressed his congratulations to the AAP’s leaders in Uttar Pradesh, calling the election “difficult” due to the state’s reputation as a BJP stronghold. “You worked hard and defeated the BJP, the SP, and other parties.”
