The AAP is also staring at the spectre of a mid-term poll in Delhi as the Election Commission is expected to deliver its verdict soon on a petition seeking disqualification of 21 AAP MLAs over the "office of profit" issue.

"They have done a good job, if not a flawless one", the Congress vice-president was quoted as having told the two leaders while noting that they should have taken other party leaders along.

Problems in the EVMs are a part of elections.

"By and large, we could not convey our point to people and there was a big communication gap". However, we failed - either in ticket distribution or in our communication - to convince people that we were the alternative they wanted.

"Blaming EVMs is not good". Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and Labour Minister Gopal Rai have also said voting machines were "rigged". "Many decisions were taken inside closed door", Kumar Vishwas said.

An "oath ceremony" was held in Kejriwal's residence where AAP leaders pledged that they will not switch to other parties. "They may offer you a lot of money, even up to Rs 10 crore but if you take this, you will regret it, pay a heavy price all your life", said Kejriwal adding that in MCD there is no anti-defection law. "They (BJP) might send you to jail or try to suppress your voice, but do not fear", the Delhi Chief Minister said.

Mississippi man sues R. Kelly, says singer ruined marriage
The paperwork also includes photocopies of text messages sent between Childress and Kelly . According to the lawsuit, Childress repeatedly traveled to nearby states to attend R.

When asked why he was missing in action in the state, Vishwas, in an apparent jibe at then Punjab in-charge Sanjay Singh, said that people calling the shots in the party felt they did not need him as they were confident of victory anyway.

Blaming Punjab loss to wrong decision by high command, he said,"Ticket distribution was wrong". The leader said AAP needed to stop taking in the leftovers of the Congress, BJP and the SP if it were to remain relevant. "We lost because people did not vote for us".

With several of its legislators facing corruption charges and growing resentment among the rank and file, Kejriwal needs to do serious introspection and shift his focus from negative campaigning to development issues.

Singh said that the party would work towards "making necessary changes" on structural and booth levels.

"We didn't sit at Jantar Mantar to fight against Congress, Modi, BJP or EVM", Kumar Vishwas said while outlining the original objective of providing an alternative stream of politics in the country.
