NEW DELHI (HRNW) In the Delhi elections, the Aam Aadmi Party defeated Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party. BJP has lost a key state elections on Tuesday. BJP won a bigger majority in a general election in May, but it has lost a string of state elections since then.
In counting for state polls held in India’s capital New Delhi, data from India’s Election Commission showed the liberal Aam Aadmi Party, led by the city’s chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal, leading 57 out of 70 seats.
The BJP ran a campaign accusing protesters of supporting India’s arch-rival Pakistan and was projected to win 13 seats, up from three in 2015 but far below its own expectations. The party’s local chief Manoj Tiwari had predicted it would win a majority.
