New Delhi (NVI) The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today swept Delhi Assembly elections for the second successive time to retain power in the national capital.
The party, led by Arvind Kejriwal, bagged 62 seats in the 70-member Assembly, just 5 short of its tally in the last Assembly polls in 2015.
The BJP, which is ruling at the Centre with brute majority in Lok Sabha and went all out to win these elections, managed to get only 8 seats. This is, however, 5 more than what it won last time.
The Congress, which ruled the state for 15 straight years till 2013, once again failed to open its account.
