NEW DELHI: Facing criticism from various quarters for Delhi MCD poll debacle, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has acknowledged in an early morning tweet that the need of the hour for him is “action and not excuses.”
Kejriwal on Saturday said that based on his interactions with volunteers and voters, it was obvious that the party made mistakes and there was a need to go back to the drawing board.
“It’s time to get back to work. And, if we slip from time to time the key is to find the reserves to hold and pull ourselves up. The people deserve nothing less. The only thing constant is change,” said Kejriwal in a tweet.

Commenting on the Kejriwal’s tweet, Vijender Gupta, Leader of the Opposition, Delhi Assembly said that it is obvious reality, that he has made mistakes is for consumption of his party volunteers and is planned ploy to divert the revolt against his leadership in the Aam Aadmi Party.
“If he is sincere, he should resign as national convener of AAP and CM for suffering humiliating defeat in the recently held elections in Punjab, Goa and Delhi. Kejriwal has not only lost the moral grounds to head the party but also to hold the post of CM for violating the oath of his office that he will do in accordance with the Constitution and law without ill will,” Gupta added.
Only a day earlier, AAP leader Kumar Vishwas had remarked that the party did not lose the elections because of EVMs. “People did not vote for us in enough number. There is mistrust among the people for us,” he said.
