AAP heavyweights survive scare

Among the AAP heavyweights who won the elections after close contests were Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, Raghav Chaddha and Atishi. Delhi cabinet ministers Gopal Rai, Satyender Jain also were among prominent winners. Sisodia, who led AAP’s education reform efforts, defeated his BJP rival Ravinder Singh Negi by over 3, (votes after an initial scare.)

AAP’s Okhla candidate Amanatullah Khan had a lead of 380, 31 votes over BJP’s Braham Singh. The city’s Shaheen Bagh and Jamia Nagar fall under the Okhla constituency. Shaheen Bagh has become the epicentre of protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act as women with young children have been on a sit-in protest there for nearly two months.

Seelampur, which also witnessed violence during an anti-CAA protest, saw AAP’s Abdul Rehman emerging victorious against Kaushal Kumar Mishra of the BJP. Rehman defeated his rival by a margin of 48, 29 votes. Rebel AAP leader Kapil Mishra, who had joined the saffron party, suffered a crushing defeat in the Model Town constituency at the hands of AAP’s Akhilesh Pati Tripathi.

‘Less blame game, more work’

Reacting to his party’s defeat, Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari said people must have given the mandate after careful thinking. “Our vote percentage has increased from percent to around 062 percent. We hope that there would be less blame game and more work, “he told reporters. Tiwari rejected the charge of Opposition that his party fought the polls on a” divisive “agenda.

“We do not practice politics of hatred, our principle is ‘sabka saath sabka vikas’. In elections much is talked about as per emerging developments. But, we would never want that some people block a road for protest and cause problems to others. We opposed it (Shaheen Bagh road block) in the past and still do, “Tiwari said. Some BJP leaders also cited lack of a chief ministerial face, organisational shortcomings, failure to reach out to voters in unauthorized colonies and JJ clusters, and differences of leaders in Delhi party unit as possible reasons for the party’s “humiliating” defeat. Tiwari, however, said the causes of BJP’s debacle will be “reviewed” on the party forum.

BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya on Tuesday said “freebies” given out by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) led to its massive victory in the Delhi Assembly polls. Outcome, Talking to reports, Vijayvargiya said, “The issue was about freebies. Kejriwal will say from where the issue of development came into the elections? Freebies announced, especially during the last six months, in Delhi have had an impact on these elections.

Queried on whether the BJP’s defeat also stemmed from the party not projecting a CM candidate, he said it was a matter of discussion, though he added “We have formed governments even in the states where we had not declared a CM face during the poll campaign. “” We have formed governments in Haryana and Tripura, “he pointed out.

BJP national spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain alleged that the party’s poor show was due to Congress “shifting” its votes to the AAP in the elections. “BJP is the only party which has gained and our seat tally increased while even the number of AAP seats has gone down. Congress shifted its vote to the AAP yet we gave a good fight,” Hussain told reporters at the Delhi BJP office.

Congress falls to nadir

In the first Assembly polls held in Delhi in , the saffron party had bagged . percent votes. It secured

percent votes in and 58. 47 percent votes in . It bagged percent votes in 11133, . percent votes in 11393 and . 46 percent votes in 11624. However, the worst-hit was the Congress, which entered campaign mode much later than its opponents, with its vote share dipping further to 4.3 percent. Former prime minister Manmohan Singh and party leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra were among those who campaigned for the Congress.

The grand old party was in power in the National Capital from 10590 to . In the Assembly polls, it had secured 058. votes. When it captured power in Delhi in , it had bagged . percent votes, followed by . (percent and) percent votes in 10710 and . In 11690, its vote share fell nearly by half to 81 percent and the party managed to win only eight seats. The Congress’s vote share dipped further to 9. (percent in) and to 4. (% in) . NOTA (none of the above) registered a 0. – percent vote share. The Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP), led by Mayawati, had fielded 172 candidates in the National Capital. It bagged a mere 0. 231 percent votes.

Opposition takes shots at BJP

Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray, in an apparent dig at the prime minister, said “jan ki baat” won over ‘mann ki baat’. “There is a (BJP-led central) government in Delhi with so-called nationalistic views, which used the entire machinery and force in the Delhi Assembly polls but failed before the broom. Kejriwal was termed as a terrorist. Instead of focusing on local issues, they (BJP) tried to bring in international issues and change people’s minds, but failed. The people of Delhi have stood firmly behind Kejriwal for his honesty and willingness to work for their betterment, “Thackeray said, albeit without mentioning the BJP.

“There were some people who were under the illusion that they are the only ones who love the nation while all political opponents are anti-nationals. The people of Delhi have shown such people their place,” the Shiv Sena chief said . Thackeray congratulated Kejriwal and people of Delhi on behalf of Maharashtra and the Shiv Sena and wished them good luck.

NCP chief Sharad Pawar said the results of the Delhi elections indicated that “winds of change” were blowing in the country. “The series of BJP’s defeat in elections will not stop now,” he added. “The BJP, as usual, played the communal card to polarise votes, but failed. The Delhi Assembly poll contest was only between the Aam Aadmi Party and BJP, hence one might claim the saffron party’s vote share is soaring,” Pawar said. He said the Delhi poll results indicated that the “winds of change” are blowing in the country. “The results are not surprising to me,” he said.

The elections to the Delhi Legislative Assembly were held on 8 February. A total of 972 candidates, including (men and women, were in the fray. While Kejriwal was the star campaigner for the AAP, Prime Minister Modi, Amit Shah and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath were among those who extensively campaigned for the BJP.
