Delhi Election Results Top Highlights: AAP Sweeps Polls With 62 seats
In almost a clean sweep, Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) mainly created history second time in a row with a victory on 62 seats in Delhi Assembly elections. The magnitude of AAP's sweep always kept the BJP to single digits and prevented the Congress from opening its account. BJP, which also fought a spirited battle against the ruling party to come back to power after two decades, improved its tally marginally to 8 seats from its 2015's tally of 3 seats. Such a huge victory mainly comes nearly after eight months it suffered a severe drubbing in the Lok Sabha polls in which the party drew a blank while the BJP won all the seven seats.
Here are the top major highlights of the Delhi poll results:
