New Delhi, Feb 10: No doubt today AAP tsunami swept the lotus and Panja in Delhi polls with mind blowing victory. Neither political bigwigs nor Prime Minister Narendra Modi factor could survive in front of AAP wave. Many big faces of both the Congress and BJP could not stop Arvind Kejriwal's chariot of victory in the national capital.
According to latest poll results, AAP won 67 seats, BJP was finished with only 3 seats and Congress had nothing in its pocket in the 70-member assembly.
With the induction of former IPS officer Kiran Bedi into BJP, it was clear that the polls will be Kiran vs Kejriwal. It was believed that it will be tough for Kejriwal to challenge Kiran as both were the members of Anna Team. However, time took a big turn and finally Kiran even could not manage to win her own Assembly seat in Krishna Nagar. She lost to AAP's SK Bagga by 1150 votes.
Arvind Kejriwal, who believes in promises, emerged stronger than the previous elections after one year. He defeated BJP's Nupur Sharma in New Delhi constituency with 4982 votes.
Similiarly, along with Kiran Bedi, fate could not favour on Jagdish Mukhi. He lost the poll from Janakpuri seat to AAP's Rajesh Rishi and Congress' Sureshn Kumar.
Even, President Pranab Mukherjee's daughter Sharmistha Mukherjee, who was contesting the poll from Greater Kailash on Congress ticket, was the loser. She was defeated by AAP's Saurabh Bhardwaj.
Ajay Maken, Congress' chief ministerial candidate also met the same fate. He lost to AAP's Som Dutt from Sadar Bazar constituency.
The AAP rooted out all the conventional theories of politics in the elections creating a record. This is a lesson for both the Congress and BJP those had been doing politics on religions, castes and communities.
Kejriwal is the top winner in the poll. But he could not have scripted history without the support of his associates like Alka Lamba, Manish Sisodia, Kumar Viswas, Gopal Rai, Sanjay Singh and Yogendra Yadav as well as the party workers, volunteers and most importantly the people of Delhi.
Alka Lamba won the polls from Chandni Chowk defeating her rivals Suman Kumar Gupta of BJP and Parlad Singh Sawhney. Chandni Chowk is the heart of Delhi and the fight was tough in the polls. Alka is the former Congress leader and student leader. Later she joined AAP and that gave her victory.
Manish Sisodia retained his Patparganj seat in the election, defeating his close rival Vinod Kumar Binny of BJP and Anil Kumar of Congress.
