Party of India PM Modi stung in New Delhi election

NEW DELHI (HRNW) – Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi s right wing party suffered a crushing defeat Tuesday in an election for control of the capital New Delhi after a vitriolic campaign in which it concentrated on defending a controversial new nationality law.

Followers of the upstart Aam Aadmi Party danced in the streets and set off fireworks after their leader Arvind Kejriwal, a tax officer turned anti-corruption campaigner, easily won a second term.

The defeat in Delhi is the latest in a string of setbacks for Modi s BJP in regional elections over the past two years.
