Srinagar/IBNS: People's Democratic Party (PDP) Chief Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday congratulated Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for his party's clean sweep at the high voltage Delhi Assembly elections.

She hailed the people of Delhi too for voting on real issues while rejecting "vitriolic divisive politics."

On behalf of Mehbooba, who is presently under house arrest, her daughter Iltija tweeted: "On behalf of Ms Mufti, I’d like to congratulate @ArvindKejriwal for his spectacular victory & especially Dilliwallahs for rejecting vitriolic divisive politics & voting on real issues instead."

Nine months after getting crushed by the mighty Narendra Modi-Amit Shah duo in the 2019 General Elections, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal came back like a Phoenix in the assembly elections on Tuesday riding on the issues of governance challenging the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s agenda of nationalism.

Though the voter turnout was slightly less than the 2015 assembly elections, Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) went passed 60 seats mark (62) to reduce the BJP to single-digit figure reminding the saffron party of its horrific result five years ago in the national capital.

Even as the BJP picked up the fight in the second and third hours of counting on Tuesday by crossing the 20 seats mark, the AAP came back strong to touch 62, five less seats than the last assembly polls, leaving eight for the BJP and a blank for the grand old party, the Congress.
