New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said the Jharkhand Assembly poll results appeared to be a verdict against the NRC and CAA.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo said BJP leaders had “aggressively” campaigned in the last two phases of the Jharkhand Assembly polls, raising the issues of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).

“So it appears that the people of at least one state have conclusively given their verdict that they do not want it (CAA and NRC),” he said at a press conference here.

Kejriwal congratulated Jharkhand Mukti Morcha’s (JMM) Hemant Soren for the poll victory and said the BJP’s electoral loss meant that its government did not perform well in Jharkhand.
