With the Aam Aadmi Party nearing a massive victory in the Delhi Assembly elections, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy took to his official Twitter handle and congratulated Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal for his remarkable victory and wished him a successful tenure.
Earlier in the day, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee called and congratulated her Delhi counterpart and AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal. Mamata Banerjee has been a vocal supporter of AAP's work and even supported the party for its elections on February 8. Senior MPs of TMC have been tweeting and giving out statements to show their support for AAP as well. Both the Chief Ministers have time and again tried to build a nationwide front against the NDA.
Congratulations @ArvindKejriwal as #DelhiResults show @AamAadmiParty all set to win #DelhiElection2020 with a thumping majority yet again. Leaders playing on faith through hate speech & divisive politics should take a cue, as only those who deliver on their promises are rewarded.— Mamata Banerjee (@MamataOfficial) February 11, 2020
