On the Gujarat assembly elections, Arvind Kejriwal claimed that there is a massive anti-incumbency in the state and people are angry with BJP there.

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday claimed that the notion of all opposition parties joining hands to defeat the BJP doesn't work, and they should rather focus on giving the voters hope and agendas for the next five years.

"This notion of all opposition parties joining hands to defeat the BJP, I don’t think it works. I am quite new to politics. What do you mean by the opposition unity- that all parties will come together to defeat the BJP, isn't it? When did they take responsibility to defeat the BJP? The people of the country will take the onus," Kejriwal said on Day 5 of the Hindustan Time Leadership Summit.

“You (the opposition) have to tell the people if they vote for you, this is how you are going to change their life. You will have to give the people hope, need to give them an agenda - that in the next five years, how you will you take the country forward. The day they will like your agenda, they will automatically vote out the BJP,” the Delhi CM said.

On the Gujarat assembly elections, Kejriwal claimed that there is a massive anti-incumbency in the state and people are angry with BJP there.
