CHANDIGARH: AAP national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday completed a 10-day meditation camp near Dharamsala and returned amid infighting in the Punjab unit of the party over the recent distribution of tickets for the upcoming Assembly elections.

After attending the camp, Kejriwal said he was rejuvenated after the meditation session and was ready to take on his opponents.

“I am feeling peaceful and energised. It will surely help me to meet challenges ahead. Our party will win at least 100 seats out of the total of 117 seats in the Punjab assembly elections,’’ he said.

When asked about the Delhi High Court judgment giving primacy to the Lieutenant Governor in the affairs of the administration in the national capital, the Delhi Chief Minister said, “I have just come out of Vipassana and will have to study the court order before commenting on the issue.’’

The party had recently announced the first list of 19 candidates for various constituencies in the State, which had not gone down well with some claimants, who thought they had a better claim to the candidature. 

Also the AAP’s state convener,  Suchha Singh Chhotepur, had said that he was unhappy with names of two candidates in the list, adding that he would speak to Kejriwal and that he would remain a loyal worker of the party.
