Delhi Results Live Updates: AAP's Manish Sisodia Trailing, Nail-Biter For Atishi

Election Results 2020: AAP’s Atishi is trailing in Kalkaji

New Delhi:

Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party has strengthened its lead over the BJP as counting of votes progressed for the Delhi election. The Delhi-based party is now leading in 56 seats while its closest rival BJP — which had been ahead in 20 seats — is now leading in 14 seats. “Our victory will prove that real patriotism is that if you get the opportunity in politics, you must work for the people. Work on education, hospitals,” said AAP’s Manish Sisodia, taking a swipe at the BJP which centred its campaign on nationalism.

Although AAP is well ahead of the BJP, the Delhi-based party is trailing in at least 20 seats it had won in the 2015 elections. For the BJP, which ran a high-voltage campaign for the February 8 election, early trends show a gain of 20 seats.

Among the heavyweights leading in various constituencies are AAP’s Rakhi Birla, Ragav Chaddha, Satyender Jain, and Kapil MIsrawho changed camp from AAP to the BJP. All the Congress heavyweights, including Alka Lamba,  Arvinder Singh Lovely, Ashok Kumar Walia and Poonam Azad are trailing. Among the AAP heavyweights trailing are Atishi and minister Satyendar Jain.

Exit polls have predicted another term for Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party, the BJP, which powered its campaign on the anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act protests at Shaheen Bagh, is likely to put up a good show.

The campaign for the Delhi Election 2020 has been bitter and polarised, the political discourse bogged down by threatening slogans and foul language.

The ruling AAP has sought to retain power on the work done in the field of education, health, and in providing cheap electricity and water, while the main opposition BJP conducted a massive campaign, roping in most of its 70 union ministers, 270 MPs and leaders and Chief Ministers from various states, to deliver it’s campaign message on anti-CAA protests and nationalism.

Delhi election 2020 was held on Saturday, with 62.59 per cent of the city’s voters coming out to exercise their democratic right. The voter turnout in the previous assembly election in 2015 stood at 67.5 per cent.

Exit polls released after the conclusion of voting predicted as many as 56 of the 70 assembly seats for AAP, leaving 14 for the BJP and zero for the Congress.

Health warning: Exit polls usually get it wrong.

Election Results: “Arvind Kejriwal’s Free Power Offer Before Polls Impacted The Poor”: BJP MP

Arvind Kejriwal’s announcement last year to not bill Delhi residents if they use no more than 200 units of electricity a month appears to have had an impact on the poor, BJP MP from Delhi, Ramesh Bidhuri, said as votes were counted for the Delhi election.

AAP was leading, racing ahead of the BJP in the first hour of counting.

“Arvind Kejriwal’s decision two month before the election to give free electricity up to 200 units has had an impact on the poor. If BJP workers succeed in ensuring that the central government’s schemes reach the ground, then the BJP’s performance will be good,” Mr Bhidhuri told NDTV.

“If they don’t ensure the schemes reaching the ground, then the Kejriwal government that gives 200 units of free electricity will benefit,” he added.

In August last year, Chief Minister Kejriwal had announced that people of Delhi will not be billed if they use no more than 200 units of electricity a month. It costs the government Rs 1,800 to Rs 2,000 crore annually on power subsidy, the Chief Minister had said.

Delhi Election Result: “Our Win Will Prove What Real Patriotism Is”, Says AAP’s Manish Sisodia

As Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) raced ahead of the BJP in the counting of votes for the Delhi election, his deputy Manish Sisodia said his party’s victory would mean that “real nationalism is to work for the people”.

AAP was leading in over 50 seats and the BJP in around 17 seats in the first hour of counting.

“Our victory will prove that real patriotism is that if you get the opportunity in politics, you must work for the people. Work on education, hospitals,” Mr Sisodia said.

“Delhi will prove that if a government works sincerely, then it can win. We kept talking about schools and hospitals but the other side tried to vitiate the atmosphere and talk only Hindu-Muslim,” the Deputy Chief Minister said, taking a swipe at the BJP.

AAP has accused the BJP of trying to polarize Delhi’s voters by crafting the narrative of “anti-national” around protests against the citizenship law, especially at Shaheen Bagh.

Several BJP leaders, including Home Minister Amit Shah, dedicated their campaign to attacks on those opposing the citizenship law, dubbing them as “traitors”. AAP claimed that it would win entirely on its development work in the past five years.

Congress’s Arvinder Singh Lovely trailing in Gandhi Nagar

Arvinder Singh Lovely is a Congress leader who had walked out of his party in 2017 to join the BJP. He returned to the Congress in February 2018.

He served as the Delhi Congress chief until he was replaced by Ajay Maken when the party was decimated in the 2015 state polls after three terms in power. In the Delhi assembly polls, he fought from the Gandhi Nagar seat against the AAP’s Naveen Choudhary.

We miss Sheila Dikshit, could not pitch anyone else effectively: Abhishek Singhvi

  • AAP should win. BJP seems to be doing better but it will stabilise at a lower figure.
  • As far as Congress is concerned, we sorely miss (former Delhi chief minister and Congress leader) Sheila Dikshit’s persona. We lost a tall leader and we could not pitch anyone else effectively.
