With days left for the National Capital to go to polls, AAP convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday addressed a press briefing wherein he stated that he has become popular among the people of the city with the work he has done during his tenure. 

Asserting that he has improved the educational and health facilities in the national capital, Arvind Kejriwal added that he has taken against corruption and also filed a complaint against former Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit. 

"Delhi ke janata ke nigaaha mai Kejriwal ke vishwasniyata sabse zyada hai media ke kam ho chuki hai. Pure Delhi ke janta jante hai Kejriwal jo kehta hai vo karta hai. Kejriwal ne kaha Delhi ke school theek karunga, kare,. Kahan Delhi ke hospital theek karunga, kare. Kejriwal ne kaha kachi colonies mai sadke banumga, banaye. Kejriwal ne kaha bhrashtachar dur karunga aur Sheila Dikshit ke khilaf case karunga, kiya." (Kejriwal has gained more popularity in the eyes of the people of Delhi, in fact, media's popularity has reduced. Entire Delhi knows Kejriwal does what he says. Kejriwal said he will improve the schools of Delhi, he did. Kejriwal said he will improve Delhi's hospitals, he did. Kejriwal said he will make roads in Kachchi colonies, he made. Kejriwal said he will remove corruption, file a case against Sheila Dikshit, he did.)

He further alleged that PM Modi snatched away the anti-corruption branch alleging that the Modi government could not take adequate action against Robert Vadra. He then claimed that if the Anti-corruption branch is returned to him, he will take action against every corrupt he had named in only one month

"Modi Ji ne anti-corruption branch cheen le mere. Anti- corruption branch wapas dila do. Jitne naam liye the, Modi Ji toh 5 saal mai Robert Vadra ko aandar nahi kar sake mujhe ek mahine ke liye dila do dekho mai kya karta hoon. (Modi ji snatched away my anti-corruption branch, just ask him to return my anti-corruption branch then see, whosoever's name I had taken, Modiji could not put Robert Vadra in custody, I will take action, just give me anti-corruption branch for one month, then see what can I do.)"

The AAP convener also launched a scathing attack at Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi saying that the General Secretary for UP East is 'wasting her time holding rallies in Delhi' as 'both the brother and sister aren't going to those places where there is a direct fight with BJP'. Addressing a press briefing, along with Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, Arvind Kejriwal said: 

"Priyanka Gandhi is wasting her time, why doesn't she campaign in Rajasthan aand Madhya Pradesh? She is doing rallies in UP against SP-BSP. She is holding rallies against AAP in Delhi. But did she hold any rallies in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh? Both the brother and sister aren't going to those places where there is a direct fight with BJP," Kejriwal said. 

While Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Congress could not forge an alliance, it will be a triangular contest in the National Capital between AAP, BJP and Congres in Delhi in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. 

In phase 6 of the Lok Sabha election, scheduled for 12 May, a few constituencies in Bihar, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal will go to polls, along with all the Lok Sabha constituencies of Haryana and the National Capital Territory of Delhi.
