Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal remarked, "Now, BJP has nothing left. BJP has no counter to the wonderful work done by the Delhi government. All the parties- BJP, LJP, JDU, RJD, Congress, Akali Dal, BSP have come together to defeat us. Their only purpose is to defeat BJP. Then the 200 MPs, 70 Ministers, 11 CMs and Amit Shah tried their best, but could not succeed. Then they started abusing me- Kejriwal is a terrorist, Kejriwal is a thief, Kejriwal is Raavan, Kejriwal is a traitor, Kejriwal is ant-national, none of this worked. Then, they started using Delhi police. Then they made an allegation yesterday."

He added, "Is it our level to order such a shooting? The family of Kapil Gujjar has said that we don’t have anything to do with AAP. Anyone can take photos with any person. I feel that he should be given strictest punishment. And if he has any link with AAP, give him 4 years punishment instead of 2. Amit Shah does such cheap conspiracy just 48 hours before the election. The entire nation knows that this is a stunt before the election."
