New Delhi: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav on Tuesday congratulated Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal for his party's massive win in Delhi Assembly polls, calling it a victory of secular thinking.

"I called Kejriwal and congratulated him. This is a win over pride; the pride of Modi and his party. Even American President said that division is not good. This is the win of a secular thinking and our support is with them. This is a landmark victory," said Yadav.

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

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 in all seats.
