PM Modi, Rahul Gandhi congratulates Kejriwal for AAP victory in Delhi Polls

TPE Correspondent
New Delhi, February 11

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today congratulated Arvind Kejriwal for the Aam Aadmi Party’s landslide victory in the Delhi Assembly election. Mr Kejriwal, in a prompt reply on Twitter, accepted PM’s wishes and said he is looking forward to work with the Centre for the development of the national capital.

“Thank you so much sir. I look forward to working closely with the Centre to make our capital city a truly world class city,” Kejriwal tweeted.

Counting of votes for the 2020 Delhi Vidhan Sabha election began at 8.00 am. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is hoping to retain power in the national capital, amid a challenge from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The Congress, which was once a dominant force in Delhi, is hoping for revival of its electoral fortunes.

Exit poll results have predicted AAP to secure a comfortable majority. This, as BJP is predicted to improve its tally. However, exit polls have gone wrong in the past.
