Manish Sisodia on election results 

The deputy CM of Delhi for the past tenure, Manish Sisodia while speaking to the media said, “The result that is going to be declared today is not mine, Arvind Kejriwal’s or AAP’s, it is about the politics where work is considered as ‘deshbhakti’ (nationalism). This is the politics where serving people is considered as ‘deshbhakti’, working for the health and the education sector is considered as ‘deshbhakti’. Today is the day when this kind of ‘deshbhakti’ will win.”

When asked about being nervous for the results, Sisodia further said, “There is obviously a little anxiety, but there the feeling of trust and confidence as well.”

“We are obviously confident about the victory because we have worked in the last five years. We have worked without any bias, without being greedy, we have worked for the people, we have worked for education and health. I am especially confident about our work in the education sector. I hope the people of Delhi have voted for that,” added Sisodia.

Replying on future plans, he said, “There is a lot of work left in Delhi.”
