The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo said BJP leaders had "aggressively" campaigned in the last two phases of the Jharkhand Assembly polls, raising the issues related to the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).

"So it appears that the people of at least one state have conclusively given their verdict that they do not want it (CAA and NRC)," he said at a press conference here. He alleged that the result reflected public reaction to the "arrogance" of the BJP visible across the country.

Kejriwal congratulated Jharkhand Mukti Morcha's (JMM) Hemant Soren for the poll victory and said the BJP's electoral loss meant that its government did not perform well in Jharkhand. "People want to vote for performance, apparently they (BJP government) did not work," Kejriwal said.

The JMM-Congress alliance in Jharkhand is headed for a majority with the ruling BJP trailing behind in the elections for 81-membered state Assembly.
