"Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party is like summer storm which has come and gone without making any difference," he added.
Lauding the voters of Punjab, Singh said the people want development in the state and have thus voted very rationally.
"We are very happy and I am very happy that I got the gift of my birthday in the form of this victory. The Punjabi voters are very sensible. They want development, jobs, industry, better education and health. I hope the Union Government will now recognize this demand of the Punjab," he added.
