Arvind Kejriwal is third time lucky too!
The Aam Aadmi Party swept back to power in Delhi with 62 seats, giving stiff defeat to yothe BJP with just 8 seats. Congress could win a single seat in the 70-member legislative assembly.
Arvind Kejriwal would be back as chief minister for the third time. AAP won 67 seats in 2015 but this time’s victory too is important as the party looks to participate in national politics.
It was a humiliating defeat for the Bharatiya Janata Party for which both the prime minister Narendra Modi and home minister Amit Shah campaigned hard.
Kejriwal is expected to be sworn-in as the chief minister on Sunday.
