NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party has accepted its defeat claiming that they are uncertain about the reasons as everyone was predicting a good show. Delhi CM and Aam Aadmi Chief Arvind Kejriwal skipped the media interaction but AAP leader Kumar Vishwas took the charge and accepted party’s defeat.

“I want to congratulate Congress and BJP, their workers as they performed well. I accept AAP’s defeat. We will analyse and learn from the results,” Kumar Vishwas reacted from outside Kejriwal’s residence.

Now AAP is focusing on Delhi MCD elections and claiming that they will intensify their efforts to make a comeback. When asked about the people responsible for the defeat, Vishwas said it’s a party defeat and everyone is responsible.

“It’s a party defeat and from Arvind Kejriwal to local party volunteer everyone is responsible. Right now we are unable to figure out reasons as everyone, including media didn’t predict such results,” Kumar said.
