New Delhi: After failing miserably at polls in states such as Punjab, Gujarat, Meghalaya, and others, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said people Delhi should vote for MPs who for work the development of the city rather than the prime ministerial candidate. 

Kejriwal while launching the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) door-to-door campaign for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, said the BJP ignored local issues and appealed Delhiites to vote in favour of AAP candidates.

Kejriwal said the people in Delhi were happy with the functioning of the AAP government. He said the government has taken revolutionary steps in the health and education sectors.

“The residents are happy with the state government's performance especially in the sectors of health, education, water and electricity. We brought revolutionary changes in the city which never happened in the past 70 years. For four months, 3,000 teams will be visiting each household in Delhi and approach every voter," CM Kejriwal said amid poll campaign.

In the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, all the 7 parliamentary seats were won by the BJP. The AAP had also fielded candidates across all the seats but failed to leave any impact. 

He added: “It does not matter who will become the Prime Minister and this time nobody knows who will be the next Prime Minister, everybody seems to be nervous. Elect all seven MPs of ours and we will get the works of Delhi done from the next Prime Minister.”
