NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal has started a drive to boost Party workers’ moral after Punjab defeat. Kejriwal will be talking to the party workers on 18th March through Facebook asking them to keep the faith in party alive. Delhi CM has also written to the AAP volunteers, saying there was no reason for the party to give up.

In a break from his combative tone, where he has even questioned the reliability of the electronic voting machines (EVM), Kejriwal charted the AAP's journey from a movement to a political party and urged volunteers to "keep the faith" alive. “The BJP has 18 seats and 20 per cent vote share in Karnataka and the Congress 15 seats and 18 per cent vote share in Maharashtra. They have not given up and there is no reason for us to give up,” Kejriwal wrote in a letter been emailed to all registered volunteers.

The letter, however, does not have any mention to the issue of alleged rigging of voting machines in Punjab as raked up by the AAP chief. "Although we did not get the expected results, we are now the opposition in Punjab. Also we have got 6 per cent votes in Goa and we are just one state away from becoming a national party," he said.
