Once again Arvind Kejriwal has proved the power of a common man as Aam Aadmi Party has claimed a massive win in the Delhi assembly polls on February 10, 2015. The AAP managed to defeat the ruling party BJP with 64 seats out of 70 member house and surpassed its own expectations while BJP fell down in a far away second place with just 5 seats.
Kejriwal described the victory as ‘people’s victory’. Even before the counting came to an end, Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated the 46 year old AAP chief and assured him of complete support in the development of Delhi. The AAP chief after the successful win assured that his first priority will be to end corruption.
This is also the first time a party has won so many seats in the assembly while former ruling party Congress failed to even open its account with zero seats. The votes counting began at 8 am and the Election Commission said that all the results are expected to be out by 12:30 pm.
AAP during its campaigning has assured of cheaper electricity and water. The party will also be taking a strong action against the popular culture in Delhi of privilege. In the next four years, Narendra Modi needs to make sure to win most of the state elections to have a control on both the Houses of Parliament so as to deliver his promise of economic growth and jobs.
