During his rally yesterday, he had said that Delhi needs people who have an experience of running government. “Kiran Bedi knows Delhi like back of her hand. She is strong and determined. Delhi needs a stable government,” he had said.
While targeting Aam Aadmi Party, he had said, “Those who gave you hopes a year back, have back-stabbed you. You must check the track record of the big-talkers around you. They have a record of losing their security deposit”
