Delhi Election Results: Kejriwal set to win New Delhi; Sisodia, Bagga trailing

Share

Mishra, who had won as an AAP candidate from the Karawal Nagar seat in 2015, had left his party to join the BJP.

The counting of votes for Delhi Assembly polls will begin from 8 AM on Tuesday and early trends will emerge within couple of hours.

Lamba, who won from Chandni Chowk seat on an AAP ticket in the 2015 elections, was way behind AAP's Parlad Singh Sawhney and Suman Kumar Gupta of BJP.

In a blow to the AAP, the Delhi Police revealed that the Shaheen Bagh shooter was a member of the ruling party and also revealed pictures of him joining the party in presence of AAP MP Sanjay Singh previous year.

Is Arvind Kejriwal heading for a third consecutive term?

"Mr. Kejriwal won the Delhi polls because of Hanumanji as he recited the Hanuman Chalisa and was blessed by Lord Hanuman otherwise he would not have won", Mr. Raina told reporters in Jammu. Before that, BJP's campaign revolved around trying to bust AAP's narrative of work done by it. The Congress could not even manage a single seat and ended with 4.26 per cent vote share.

Some senior leaders like national spokesperson Sanjay Singh did visit the protest site, but the party kept focusing on its development agenda to seek votes and refused to get drawn into the politics of polarisation.

Ballad reports more flu cases, urges caution amid 'uncommonly harsh' flu season
Reported illnesses have ranged from people with little to no symptoms to people becoming severely ill and dying. That is compared to 19 million cases of influenza in the US , and more than 10 thousand deaths this flu season.


The leader of the AAP, Arvind Kejriwal, once a self-confessed anarchist and anti-corruption activist, has been highly critical of the BJP government during his time as Delhi chief minister.

The AAP is leading on more than 55 seats while the BJP is trailing with over 10 seats in the 70-member assembly.

There are a total of 70 Assembly constituencies.

The victory also assumes significance as it came in the face of BJP's no holds barred attack against protesters opposing the Citizenship (Amendement) Act as "supporters of Pakistan" during the bitterly-fought campaign.

Final voter turnout in Delhi Assembly elections is 62.59 percent.

The BJP and the ruling AAP indulged in an aggressive blame game over the issue, holding each other responsible for gaining political mileage from it. The Congress party had pressed its several leaders including Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra into campaigning.
