Despite a massive effort from the Bharatiya Janata Party – 5,000 campaign events, rallies by ministers and Members of Parliament, a high-pitched online campaign to polarise the electorate – the Aam Aadmi Party is all set to form the government in Delhi again, for another five years.
With AAP registering a record win in the Delhi Assembly Elections 2020, one thing is clear, that Delhi cares about education, healthcare and other basic utilities and voted against all the communal politics and hatred playing in the background.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal thanked the people of the city-state for reposing trust in the Aam Aadmi Party for the third time, as Assembly election trends showed the party winning by a landslide. “The people of Delhi have voted for the politics of development,” the AAP chief said.
By 7.45 pm, the ruling party had won 52 seats, and was ahead in 10. The Bharatiya Janata Party won six seats and was leading in two, the Election Commission said. The Aam Aadmi Party has been leading since trends began trickling in on Tuesday morning. All 70 seats had voted on Saturday.
