Aam Aadmi Party national convenor and former chief minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal has issued the following statement to the media on May 21, Wednesday:
“During the Lok Sabha elections, we went to many parts of the country and met people from all walks of life. We were told that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) consists of good and courageous people, who can take on rich and powerful to expose their misdeeds.
During the campaign, however, we also realised that a large number of people were quite angry with us for having quit the Delhi government. We were asked why did we leave the government ? We were also asked why did we go away ? This also gave our political opponents an opportunity to spread misinformation about us.
After considering all aspects, I apologise to the people, who wanted the AAP government in Delhi to continue. Our party wanted to know the reasons for the anger of the people against us and we were told that during 49 days in office, the AAP government had reduced the power tariffs by half, provided free water and corruption in public dealing had disappeared.

Reliance has yesterday issued notice to the government seeking arbitration on the Gas Price issue. On the eve of the election results, Reliance now says that it is not happy with the price of $8.40/MMBTU notified by the government (which has been stayed for the time being by the election commission till the elections are over) and wants more. It seeks to get from gas fields owned by the people of India (for which Reliance is merely a contractor) a price equal to the price at which Gas is being imported into India in Refrigerated LNG ships (around 16$ as they claim).
