The debutant Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has made a rockstar entry in Delhi by stealing the show with 28 seats, though it could not get a majority to form the next government. The Bharatiya Janata Party dethroned the Congress to emerge as the single largest party in the election by winning 31 of the 70 seats.


The political debutant Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has made a rockstar electoral entry by scooping up 28 seats out of 70 in the Delhi Assembly elections, though the BJP has emerged as the single largest party with 33 seats. The electorate has sprung a surprise by throwing a situation of no party being a clear winner. The AAP has clarified that it would play constructive opposition, while the BJP has also declared its intention of sitting in the Opposition, leading to a potential hung assembly.





AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal has proved to be a giant killer by defeating three-time CM Sheila Dikshit from the New Delhi constituency by a huge margin 25,000 + votes. The former Delhi BJP president, Vijender Gupta, has finished a poor third. Several AAP candidates, despite being political non-entities, demolished defeating Congress stalwarts like four-time MLA Chaudhary Prem Singh, PWD Minister Raj Kumar Chauhan, Education Minister Kiran Walia, Transport Minister Ramakant Goswami and Health Minister A.K. Walia. Remarkably, the AAP won not only in the lower -middle class and working class constituencies in East and West Delhi, but also emerged victorious in posh South Delhi.



This time around, the Congress has managed to win just eight seats, clearly losing support overall. The Congress government has taken a heavy beating due to rising prices, high power and water rates apart from the allegations of corruption in Commonwealth Games. Though it was credited with infrastructure development, bringing in the Metro, setting up educational institutions, the party certainly failed to appreciate the strong undercurrent of AAP and the young voters, who accounted for the heavy voter turnout.
