BJP polls more votes than AAP, Congress in Delhi

Tue, May 17, 2016, 12:22 PM
The Bharatiya Janata Party continues to hold its sway over the Delhi civic body, polling 34.11% votes in the by-elections to 13 wards as compared to Aap's 29.93% and 24.87% of the Congress. But, as usual, the seats were won in a topsy-turvy way. AAP won five of the 13 wards, the Congress four and the BJP just three, and one was won by an independent.

It's a fair success for the non-AAP parties, which tasted abysmal defeat in the Delhi Assembly elections that brought Arvind Kejriwal to power. Of the 13 wards in the civic body that witnessed by-elections, 12 belonged to AAP. Thus it could retain only five. The Aam Admi is decreasingly seeing AAP as panacea for the common man's problems in Delhi. Still AAP is celebrating the success in the wards, saying it could have won more.
