The results of the Delhi Assembly elections has turned out as expected with the Aam Aadmi Party heading towards a landslide victory for the 2nd time. The Bharatiya Janata Party despite its poor show in terms of number of seats has managed to secure a vote share of close to 40% (38.8% vote share at 4 PM).
The Congress on the other hand, stares at yet another humiliating defeat in the national capital. With an abysmal vote share of 4.27%, down from 9.7% in 2015, the party is bound to lose its deposit in almost all of the seats.
However, former Union Minister P Chidambaram has come out with a tweet congratulating AAP for its victory.
In this tweet, Mr. Chidambaram stated that the people of Delhi have defeated the "polarising, divisive and dangerous agenda of the BJP" without realizing that his party's vote share has dwindled by half compared to 2015 elections.
The BJP has seen an increase of more than 6% in its vote share compared to its performance in 2015. It is also expected to get 8 seats, a considerable increase from its earlier tally of 3 in 2015.
The Congress which had a vote share of 48% in 2003 when Sheila Dixit was in power now lies in shambles. It looks like the Gandhi family has become more of a liability to the Congress party which now runs the risk of becoming irrelevant like the left parties.
