Downplaying his party's dismal performance in the polls, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal today said it was a "good start", but admitted that it could have done better in the national capital, where it had emerged as the second largest party in Assembly election six months back.

"....This was our first (general) election. It is a good start though we are a bit upset over the Delhi results. We could have done better in the national capital," he told reporters here.

Asked whether AAP should have focussed more on specific seats, Kejriwal replied, "I always have maintained that this is people's election and we did not have money. We were just providing platform to the public.


"We are surprised over results in Punjab and shocked over the outcome in Delhi. We will sit in the next 3-4 days and discuss the results. People's verdict is supreme in democracy and we accept that. I am grateful to people for their love and respect," he said. AAP had fielded candidates in 443 seats.
