New Delhi: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Tuesday congratulated Aam Aadmi Party chief and Delhi CM-designate Arvind Kejriwal for his party's landslide victory in Delhi Assembly polls, also calling it historic.

“I congratulate Kejriwal ji on this historic win, he will win hearts of people of Delhi,” Ramdev told reporters here.

In a major setback for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress, the AAP won the recently concluded Delhi Assembly elections with 67 of the 70 Assembly seats today.

The BJP, which was relying heavily on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's popularity and had also brought in former IPS officer Kiran Bedi as its chief ministerial candidate to counter Kejriwal, managed to secure just three seats.

The Congress, which had ruled the national capital for 15 years up to 2013 and was trying to rebuild its lost ground in Delhi, has lost all seats.
