The Congress was in power in Delhi between 1998 and 2013 but drew a blank in the 2015 polls. Congress contested the Delhi Assembly polls in alliance with the Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD). It fielded candidates on 66 seats leaving four for the RJD. The AAP seeks to retain power on the development plank against the BJP that ran a campaign centred around the issues of anti-CAA protests and nationalism.
