MCD Election Results: BJP won't be celebrating bumper victory – The reason will make you proud

New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party is all set to register an astounding victory in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) Elections.

However, the party has decided not to celebrate the victory in the wake of the massacre of 25 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel by Maoists in Chhattisgarh's Sukma on Monday.

“We won’t celebrate because of Sukma attack,” Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari said.

Also, a hoarding has been put up outside the BJP's central office at 11, Ashoka Road, dedicating the win to the CRPF jawans, who lost their lives in Chhattisgarh`s Sukma attack.

The poster featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP chief Amit Shah, Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari has been put up outside the BJP headquarter.

Riding on a Modi wave, the BJP was on Wednesday headed for a clean sweep of the Delhi civic polls and was set to retain the three municipal corporations for the third term in a row, as predicted in exit polls. The AAP has alleged widespread tampering of EVMs in favour of the BJP.

As counting progressed, the Bharatiya Janata Party was declared victorious in six wards and was leading in over 140 of the 270 that went to polls on April 23, Delhi State Election Commission officials said.

The AAP was at a distant second, leading in 40 and had won one ward. The Congress was ahead in 28 wards.
