In a dramatic change of events in the Delhi Assembly Elections, the results have swinged totally in favor of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

Mr Kejriwal told cheering party supporters that the “people of Delhi have achieved something spectacular”.
“With the help of people, we will make Delhi a city which both poor and rich will feel proud of,” he said.
As supporters showered him with rose petals, Mr Kejriwal said the huge mandate was “very scary and we should live up to people’s expectations”.

PM Narendra Modi congratulated the AAP leader, whose career seemed doomed a year ago when he quit as Delhi’s chief minister over a crucial anti-corruption bill. It is the BJP’s first setback since it triumphed in the 2014 general election.
