Will support any 'non-Modi' party if Delhi given full statehood, says Arvind Kejriwal

The Delhi CM said he was confident that AAP will win seven seats from Delhi in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will support any 'non-Modi' party that comes to power if it gives Delhi full statehood, said Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in an interview with CNBC-TV18 on Wednesday.
The Delhi CM said he was confident that AAP will win seven seats from Delhi in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.
Attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is seeking votes for the PM in Delhi on the basis of AAP's work.
Kejriwal said that people are very happy with the work his party has done in the last five years and added that they have realised that the Centre has been a hurdle to the government in the national capital. He is confident that AAP will once again form the government in Delhi.
The CM claimed that his party had done exceptional work in the fields of education, healthcare, water, electricity.
On seat-sharing pact with Congress, he said, "we had a pact with Congress on seat sharing in Punjab, Haryana and Delhi... Congress backed out abruptly."
Attacking Rahul Gandhi, he said the Congress President was misleading the people saying AAP backed out of the deal on seat-sharing. He further added that though the party had no plans to join hands with Congress, it was ready to do so to send Modi-Shah duo out.
"The Narendra Modi-Amit Shah duo is dangerous for India’s democracy," he said.
Further, he has alleged that Modi is involved in a conspiracy with Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan. “Cannot understand how Imran Khan is saying Modi should become India’s PM again,” he said.
Talking about the recent attack on him in a roadshow, he said that the BJP was a key “beneficiary”.
