NEW DELHI: Calling the Aam Aadmi Party's victory in the Delhi Assembly polls as 'historic', yoga guru Baba Ramdev today greeted party convener Arvind Kejriwal and expressed hope that he would fulfil his promises.
"AAP has registered historic 'maha vijay'. I congratulate Kejriwal on this victory and hope he will fulfil the promises made to the people of Delhi," Ramdev told reporters.
"I hope he will also win the hearts and trust of people by doing good work," he added.
Ramdev, who has been openly praising BJP in the past months, had also supported the anti-corruption movement started by Anna Hazare in 2012.
During an interaction with the media at the Ahmedabad airport, Ramdev, a BJP sympathiser, expressed hope that Kejriwal would follow the high standards in public life he set for himself.
"I am sure that he would prove himself worthy of this 'Maha-Vijay' (grand victory) by following the high-standards he set for himself. I am also confident he will do value-based politics, which he used to profess, and win the hearts and trust of the people of Delhi," he said.
Ramdev was in Ahmedabad to attend the marriage of BJP president Amit Shah's son, Jay.
