AAP hand out a shocker to the BJP: Even though the ruling BJP defied the exit poll predictions with respect to its seat-winning tally, they are well behind AAP as per the current reports that are emerging in the recently concluded MCD polls in Delhi conducted by the Election Commission of Delhi. The BJP, who were at the helm of affairs in the Delhi civic body for the last 15 years, are about to lose their dominance to the AAP as per latest reports. The BJP is currently leading in about 100 seats as compared to the AAP, who are presently maintaining a steady lead in more than 130 seats, and are well over the halfway mark of 125. The exit polls had been spot-on in their prediction of the AAP registering a thumping win leaving its opponents far behind.

For us, this is not just a victory, it is a big responsibility.”, he said. The Congress Party Office wore a deserted look amidst in stark contrast to the AAP celebrations as problems continue to multiply the “Grand Old Party”.
