Saying he was "100 per cent" sure EVM tampering prevented an AAP victory in Punjab, Kejriwal told IANS in an interview that this would be tried on Sunday too in Delhi's municipal elections.

The BJP, which now rules the MCD and all its three arms, is looking to retain power in the civic body, while the AAP is trying hard to wrest power from the Amit Shah-led party.

While the Delhi BJP did not officially cite any reason behind cancelling the rally, top sources said Shah chose to opt out at the last moment.

Taking escalating cost of contesting polls, the Election Commission increased the expenditure limit in the MCD Election 2017 for a candidate from Rs 5 lakh to Rs 5.75 lakh.

Kejriwal said the AAP would certainly respond if and when the poll panel invited it to check the EVMs.

Witty slogans and colourful posters are adding a zing to Delhi's political atmosphere here ahead of the civic polls, where election campaigning have already raised the stakes high and the decibels higher. Pinarayi is a good human being, Kejriwal said.

The Swaraj India leader also said, "If you get majority in the three MCDs (that is, 137 seats only), I will admit that my understanding is wrong and that people of Delhi don't consider you a betrayer".
