For the third time, Arvind Kejriwal, will take oath as the Delhi Chief Minister on February 16 at Ramlila Maidan, affirmed officials.
Taking a look at the final figures released by the Election Commission, the AAP with a total vote share of 53.57 per cent, won 62 seats out of 70. However, the BJP had to rest with only 8 seats and showcased their total vote share as 38.51 per cent. But, Congress failed to get any seat and had to rest with a total vote share of 4.26 per cent.
Although, in the Lok Sabha polls of 2019 BJP marked their victory on all 7 seats but in the Assembly Polls, AAP's triumph over BJP is phenomenal.
It is also assumed that Kejriwal's victory is an answer to the BJP, who during campaigns had alleged protesters opposing the newly amended Citizenship ACT (CAA) and called them 'anti-nationals,' 'terrorists,' and 'rapists.'
AAP chief Kejriwal delivered brief vote of thanks to Delhiites and said, "Dilliwalon, ghazab kar diya aapne (Delhiites, you have done the impossible). I love you." During thanks-giving, Kejriwal was accompanied by his wife, daughter and senior party leaders at the party's headquarters in New Delhi.
"It is the begining of new kind of politics today. This is very auspicious message for the country and the politics of work can only take our country to the 21st century," he added.
Massive number of supporters cheered for him when he said, "Bharat Mata Ki Jai (It is a victory for Bharat Mata (Mother India)."
To thank and seek further blessings of Almighty, Kejriwal along-with his family and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia visited the famous Hanuman temple near Connaught Place.
On AAP's win, Modi congratulated party chief and wished him "the very best" in fulfilling the aspirations of the people. "Congratulations to AAP and shri Arvind Kejriwal ji for the victory in the Delhi assembly elections. Wishing them the very best in fulfilling the aspirations of the people of Delhi," the prime minister tweeted.
Opposition leaders also hailed AAP's landslide win as a defeat of the politics of polarisation and hate and a victory of inclusive politics, saying "winds of change" are blowing in the country.
