In his address at the National Council, which met for the first time after expulsion of AAP founding members Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav, he said his government has
achieved more than what Sheila Dikshit's dispensation did in 15 years and it has even outperformed the NDA regime at the Centre.

"We are not here for power politics. People ask if AAP is in race for 2019? We are not in any race. Delhi's win was miraculous. We just have to keep working hard and honestly.

Don't run after elections. All indications are that you are going to get the same opportunity in Punjab," he said.

The AAP had won four seats in Punjab in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and was routed in other states including in Delhi.

According to a party leader, Kejriwal said there has been a "rat race" for prime ministerial candidature in the next Lok Sabha polls and indicated AAP was not in that competition.
