MUMBAI: Congratulating the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) over its scintillating victory in the Delhi Assembly polls, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Tuesday said 'Jan Ki Baat' won over 'Mann Ki Baat', an apparent dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The AAP headed back to power in Delhi, by winning in 62 of the total 70 seats, while the BJP managed to win only eight seats.

Reacting to it, Thackeray said, 'The people of Delhi have chosen 'Jan Ki Baat' over 'Mann Ki Baat'. There is a (BJP-led central) government in Delhi with so-called nationalistic views, which used the entire machinery and force in the Delhi Assembly polls but failed before the broom.' Broom is the poll symbol of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Adami Party.

'Kejriwal was termed as a terrorist. Instead of focusing on local issues, they (BJP) tried to bring in international issues and change people's minds, but failed.

The people of Delhi have stood firmly behind Kejriwal for his honesty and willingness to work for their betterment,' Thackeray said without taking BJP's name.

'There were some people who were under the illusion that they are the only ones who love the nation while all political opponents are anti-nationals. The people of Delhi have shown such people their place,' the Shiv Sena chief said.

Thackeray congratulated Kejriwal and the people of Delhi on behalf of Maharashtra and the Shiv Sena and wished them good luck.
