Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will win all the 70 seats in the Assembly election next year as he lauded the contribution of his party workers on his birthday.

“I want to thank the AAP workers for their contribution towards the party. In last assembly elections, we won 67 seats but this time we will win all 70 seats,” he said in a video posted on the AAP’s official Twitter handle. The AAP national convenor addressed his party workers who came to greet him on his 51st birthday.

The AAP registered a landslide victory in the last Assembly election and won 67 out of the 70 seats in Delhi.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi wished the Chief Minister on his birthday. “Birthday greetings to Delhi CM Shri @ArvindKejriwal. Praying for his good health and long life,” Modi tweeted.

Leader of Opposition in Delhi Vijender Gupta, his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee, former Jharkhand chief minister Hemant Soren and BJP MP Rajeev Chandrasekhar, among others who greeted Kejriwal on his birthday.
