NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister and AAP national convenor Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday thanked the people of Gujarat after his party registered impressive gains in the civic body polls in the state and bagged 27 seats.

He said that the people of Gujarat have "rejected the centuries-old politics of Congress and chosen the Aam Aadmi Party as the main opposition party, which proves that they want politics of development and work in the state".
