Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal urged people to cast their vote on Sunday. The CM also asked people to vote for candidates who have performed well in the past couple of years and not for the ones who have been spreading "hatred" and "venom".
Kejriwal also appealed voters not to vote for those who are creating a hindrance for developmental work in Delhi.
Good morning Delhi. वोट डालने ज़रूर जाना। जिसने आपके काम किए उनको वोट देना। नफ़रत और ज़हर फैलाने वालों को और दिल्ली के काम रोकने वालों को वोट मत देना। आपका वोट देश बदल सकता है।— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) May 12, 2019
His tweet translated as, "Good morning Delhi. Please vote. Vote for those who have done your work. Don't vote for those who are spreading hatred and venom and stopping work in Delhi. Your vote can change the country."
