NEW DELHI- Arvind Kejriwal wins trust vote. The newly formed government riled by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) won the trust vote after the Congress said it will support the new government in public interest.

Speaking during the debate on the vote, Kejriwal said “we want to bring Swaraj, self-rule, in Delhi”. He said politicians forced the AAP to contest the elections.

“The people asked for honest politics, but the politicians of this country did not listen,” he said.

“We had decided whether we lose of win, we will always stand for the truth. Who knew we would win. Politicians used to make fun of us, that we will lose, but truth prevails,” he said.

Reiterating his party’s aim to rid the country of corruption, he said, “Where has all the money for people gone? We have to admit it has been eaten up by corrupt politics.

People, not MLAs and officers, will decide where their money should be spent,” he said.

In 65 years why was the ‘aam aadmi’ not able to fulfil his basic needs? Kejriwal asked.

The five-day-old government sailed through with the help of the Congress despite the acrimony between the two sides. The AAP and the Congress have publically taken on each other, raising concerns about the longevity of the government.

Lone Janata Dal (United) MLA Shoaib Iqbal and Independent MLA Rambir Shokeen voted in favour of Delhi’s first minority government.

Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said that corruption was a major issue discussed in the Delhi assembly and assured the House that all politicians, including AAP MLAs, will be punished if they are involved in corruption.
