New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party leader Kumar Vishwas on Saturday said that the party must learn from its mistakes in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) elections.

“I apologise to our workers. They worked very hard. There has been a communication gap between volunteers and the party leadership,” he told CNN-News18.

The poet-turned-politician, however, insisted that AAP is the fastest-growing political party in the country. “I will not leave AAP. It is my party, it is my right to advise party members,” he told CNN-News.

Congratulating the BJP on its emphatic win in the civic polls, he said the onus is now on them to make sure that there is no water-logging and spread of diseases such as dengue and malaria during the monsoon season.

Earlier in the day, Kejriwal had accepted that the party had made mistakes and it is time to introspect.

"Yes we made mistakes, but we will introspect and course correct. Time to go back to the drawing board," Kejriwal said.

"To not evolve would be silly. We owe that to voters and volunteers. We owe to that ourselves. Need is action and not excuses," he added.

Kejriwal's response came after he had a one-on-one session with MLAs.

The BJP retained control of all the three corporations, bagging 181 wards while the AAP could win just 48 wards. The national capital has a total of 272 wards.​
