Aam Admi Party (AAP) sweeps BJP away in Delhi municipal corporation elections

BJP’s fifteen-year-hold on Delhi municipal corporation came to an end. The AAP dislodged the BJP from power in the urban local body in the country’s capital.
In the just concluded elections, the AAP bagged 134 seats, BJP secured 104, Congress got nine and others got three seats.
The Congress faded away while the BJP which claims to be the biggest party lost its hold at last.
Reacting to the result, AAP leader and Delhi chief minister Mr Aravind Kejriwal said they need blessings from Mr Modi for the development of the Delhi municipal corporation.
The BJP tried its best to restrict the AAP from gaining any strength in Gujarath and wanted AAP leaders to be kept away from the campaign there. The BJP thought the AAP leaders would be busy with the Delhi municipal corporation elections. The BJP plan boomeranged.
On the Gujarat possible outcome, Mr Kejriwal already went on record that they would be content even if his party got a reasonably good percentage of votes.
The result of Delhi Municipal Corporation could be the beginning of the end of the BJP though slowly. It would impact the voters across the country and the impact could be seen after the elections in various states.
