AAP registers historic victory in Delhi polls, BJP trounced

Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) President Arvind Kejriwal during an interview with PTI, at his residence in New Delhi on Thursday.

NEW DELHI: Arvind Kejriwal led the Aam Aadmi Party to a stupendous victory yet again in the Delhi Assembly polls, dealing a body blow to the main rival BJP and completely decimating the Congress in a keenly-watched battle in the midst of anti-CAA protests.

The 51-year-old bureaucrat-turned-politician almost replicated the AAP’s fairy-tale victory of 2015 by riding on his Government’s development agenda, and in the process emerged as a key leader in the national political landscape.

According to latest results, the AAP won in 56 seats and was leading in six others with a total vote share of 53.58 per cent. The BJP recorded victory in seven seats and was ahead in one constituency, receiving 38.49 per cent of the total votes. The Congress could not even manage a single seat and ended with 4.27 per cent vote share. (AGENCIES)
