After a remarkable victory, Aam Aadmi Party convenor Arvind Kejriwal is ready to take an oath as Delhi chief minister on February 16 at the Ramlila Maidan. This will be his third time as chief minister.
Maintaining its winning streak, AAP secured a notable victory with 62 seats in the 70-member Delhi assembly. Although much behind AAP, the BJP managed to increase its total seat tally from 3 in 2015 to 8 this year. The Congress, however, once again failed to open their account.
Kejriwal gave a big out to the national capital with an “I love you”, adding that AAP’s victory will give birth to “kaam ki rajneeti (politics of work)”.
Lok Janshakti Party said the results of Delhi assembly elections prove that people reward those who work.
Delhi BJP chief, Manoj Tiwari, who became the favourite subject of memes after the results, rejected the charge of opposition parties that his party fought the polls on a “divisive” agenda.
“We never do politics of hate but we are still against the blockage of roads for 60 days as it leads to inconvenience of people. We will review the results and the reasons behind our defeat. I’m the Delhi BJP president, so I take the responsibility,” he said.
He was mercilessly trolled with endless dubbings on 'Rinkiya ke Papa'.
Where BJP tried to make Shaheen Bagh the focal point of the elections, Kejriwal maintained his narrative on real progress.
Certainly, the party has come a long way since the 2013 elections. Now, Delhi awaits to see what else Kejriwal's government has in store.
