NEW DELHI: In an apparent reference to the tussle between the AAP-led Delhi government and BJP-led Centre, state Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said their struggles had increased after the polls, in which they won with a thumping majority.

"We thought the struggle was only till election but we have realised our struggle has actually started now. We thought they will take revenge during elections but we did not know they will try to take more revenge after our victory," Kejriwal said.

"We are following path of truth and honesty and we have faith we will win. In five years we all will make collective efforts to change Delhi completely for betterment," he said at an event organised to pay homage to former MP, late Bhiku Ram Jain on his 100th birth anniversary.

Paying floral tributes to Jain, Kejriwal said that AAP is working in line with Jain's principles and a true homage to Jain would be to follow his footsteps.

"He (Jain) was a good leader and AAP is working in line with his principles. His political and social journey was based on non-violence and honesty. He especially fought for the rights of the trader community.

"He had participaed in the Quit India Movement following Mahatma Gandhi's call in 1942. He was a freedom fighter and the true homage to him by the people present here would be to follow his footsteps," Kejriwal said.
