The increase in BJP's voteshare augurs well for the party at a time when assembly elections are round the corner in Delhi. Its voteshare has crossed the 54-per cent mark achieved by the Aam Aadmi Party in 2015 assembly poll when the Arvind Kejriwal-led party had swept 67 out of the total 70 seats in Delhi. BJP had recorded a voteshare of 32.3 per cent in 2015 assembly election.

AAP's voteshare of 32.90 per cent in 2014 Lok Sabha polls has been reduced to 18.1 per cent this time. However, counting is underway for all seven seats in Delhi.

Sure of emerging victorious on all the seven seats with five of its candidates breaking records in terms of leading with the highest margin ever, the BJP continued to dominate the trends while the Congress and AAP trailed the saffron party at the second spot in five and two constituencies, respectively. The BJP-led National Democratic Alliance has retained power with a bigger mandate than 2014 Lok Sabha election winning over 340 seats.
