AAP tsunami routs BJP, Congress in Delhi


New Delhi, Feb 10:

In one of the most stunning comebacks in Indian political history, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) of Arvind Kejriwal Tuesday scored a landslide win in Delhi, delivering to the BJP its first electoral defeat since its historic Lok Sabha triumph and reducing the Congress, that had ruled the capital for 15 years till 2013, to a virtual nonentity.

AAPAs thousands of AAP activists broke into celebrations all over the capital, election officials counting the votes polled Saturday said the party was tipped to end up with a staggering 67 of the 70 assembly seats — the highest victory margin for any party in Delhi so far.

While the BJP managed to secure only three seats, the Congress failed to open its account.
