Days after disastrous performance in Delhi MCD polls, chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday morning has confessed that his party made mistakes that caused in a number of electoral debacles in the recent weeks. This is the first such confession by the CM after the results for assembly and civic body polls were declared.
“In the last 2 days, I spoke to many volunteers and voters. The reality is obvious. Yes, we made mistakes but we will introspect and course correct. Times to go back to drawing board. To not evolve would be silly. We owe that to voters and volunteers. Need is action and not excuses. It’s time to get back to work. And even if we slip from time to time, the key is to find the reserves to hold and pull ourselves up. The people deserve nothing less. The only thing constant is change. Jai Hind,” confessed Kejriwal on Twitter.

Kejriwal’s party faced a humiliating defeat in Goa in March when it could not even manage to win a single seat. While it claimed to form the government in Punjab, the party could win 20 plus seats in coalition with Lok Insaaf Party. In Delhi MCD polls too, it barely manage to win 48 seats out of 270 plus wards.
Now, after much of noise from party workers and blame game politics, the CM has finally admitted its mistakes.
