Delhi Assembly election a “moral victory and not a huge victory in terms of numbers”

Aam Aadmi Party leader Yogendra Yadav on Sunday said the party had a “big opportunity” in Haryana with the prevailing political situation in the State being similar to Delhi in many ways.

Addressing a party workers’ meeting at Natraj Greens on Old Delhi Road here, Mr. Yadav gave a call for the beginning of clean politics in the State from the Millennium City.

‘Strong resentment’

He said there was strong resentment among the people in Haryana against the ruling party which has been in power for a decade now and the Opposition leaders are in jail on corruption charges.

“The situation in Haryana is akin to Delhi in many ways with the same party being in rule for ten years and the absence of Opposition. Even the party offering itself as a substitute is born out of corruption. It is a big opportunity. The black politics of Haryana stems from Gurgaon. I wish white politics in the State makes a beginning here,” said Mr. Yadav.

Terming the AAP performance in the Delhi Assembly elections a “baby step”, Mr. Yadav said it was just a “moral victory” and not a huge victory in terms of numbers. Taking a dig at the Congress for offering unconditional support to the AAP in Delhi to form a government without even being asked for it, Mr. Yadav said the situation was similar to a “bride getting married without her knowledge”.
