It is to be noted that a nation-building campaign dubbed Aam Aadmi Party's Rashtra Nirman was launched by the party on Tuesday as the results of Delhi Assembly election started pouring in. Through its campaign, the Arvind Kejriwal-led party has been inviting Indians to join the party to develop India.
The AAP registered a stunning victory in Delhi Assembly election winning 62 out of 70 seats at stake. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came a distant second with only eight seats in its kitty, while the Congress failed to open its account once again.
Kejriwal, 51, succeeded in defeating the BJP and the Congress by riding on his government's development agenda and with the historic win he has emerged as an important challenger to the BJP at the national level.
As the AAP registered a landslide win, leaders cutting across party lines including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi, NCP chief Sharad Pawar, West Bengal Mamata Banerjee, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and DMK chief MK Stalin congratulated Kejriwal.
AAP managed to retain power in Delhi after grabbing a total vote share of 53.57 per cent. The BJP got 38.51 per cent of the total votes and the Congress ended with only 4.26 per cent vote share.
