Three days ahead of the municipal elections, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said that irrespective of outcome, the Aam Aadmi Party will continue its fight against the EVMs. In an interview to Hindustan Times, the AAP’s national convener said the April 23 elections were a direct fight between AAP and the BJP.

Promising to personally monitor MCDs if his party comes to power in the corporations he said, “I would like to tell people that Modiji is not going to run the MCD… MCD will only be run by Kejriwal.” He added that while the BJP was seeking votes in the name of he Prime Minister he will not be in a position to run the MCDs.

Taking potshots at his rival parties he said that while Congress is “finished”, BJP has been unable to resolve the Capital’s garbage problem. “Any vote for BJP is a vote for filth and chikungunya,” he said. He also took up questions on the Rajouri bypoll and his relationship with the two L-Gs and outlined his road map for the MCDs.
