Days before the vote counting for the Lok Sabha elections 2019 begins, Delhi Chief Minister and AAP Convenor Arvind Kejriwal has said that the Muslim vote shifted to the Congress at the last moment in Lok Sabha elections in Delhi.
When the Indian Express asked Arvind Kejriwal how many seats the AAP is going to win in 2019, he said “Let us see what happens. Actually, chunaav ke 48 ghante pehle tak saaton seat lag raha tha Aam Aadmi Party ko aayengi. Last moment pe complete Muslim vote got shifted to Congress. Last night, the night before election. We are trying to figure out ki hua kya hai. Poora ka poora Muslim vote jo hai woh Congress ko shift ho gaya. They are 12-13 per cent. (48 hours before the polling, we were confident of winning all seven seats. But at the last moment, Muslim vote got shifted to Congress. We are trying find out what happened)”.
