Addressing a press conference, the prime minister said that only time will tell if AAP is successful in tackling challenges.

"We must respect the democratic process. Time will tell (if AAP has been) capable of dealing with challenges. (They) must be given time to justify themselves," the prime minister said to a query on Arvind Kejriwal government in Delhi pushing for audit of power distribution companies by the Comptroller and Auditor General.

The minority Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government won a crucial trust vote in the Delhi assembly Thursday after the Congress and two other legislators extended support to it.

The prime minister said dealing with corruption was not easy.

"We must collectively grapple deal with (corruption). It is not a task which one party can accomplish. Many parties have to work together," the prime minister said.
