New Delhi, May 21 - Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal Wednesday sought fresh election in Delhi.

Kejriwal said: We have decided that we will prepare for the elections (in Delhi). We will go among the people.

The announcement comes just days after the Lok Sabha election got over. The AAP won four parliamentary seats in Punjab and did not win any Lok Sabha seat in Delhi, where the party had made a stunning debut in last year's assembly election.

A meeting of the AAP legislators was held here at Kejriwal's residence.
