Speaking to the media after casting his vote, Gadhvi appealed to the people to step out of their homes and use their voting rights.
"I appeal to people to step out and go to polling stations and vote. Choose whoever you want but you will be able to demand answers from political leaders only if you vote. I expect AAP to win 51 plus out of 89 seats in the first phase and 52 plus seats in the second phase," he said.
