Delhi elections-AAP leading while BJP ‘not winning’
Delhi’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leads the general elections, defeating the ruling BJP party.
AAP is leading with a majority of two-third out of a total of 70 seats.
Voting in Delhi started after BJP led an aggressive campaign in which Amit Shah took to the streets to motivate voters.
Early trends in Delhi show that AAP led by politician Arvind Kejriwal is going to win the elections.
Initial results reveal that AAP is dominating in 57 seats while Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is having 13 seats.
However, BJP still hopes to win this election with 30 seats when final results will come out.
BJP spokesperson Pratyush Kanth said to the international news agency, “It’s still early trends,”
On the other hand, AAP members have started celebrations outside the AAP office. Party workers informed that it was the evidence of the fact that they chose to work hard on development and governance and avoid “divisive politics”.
Arvind Kejriwal has been credited by people for his contribution to Delhi, including the development of government-run schools, making affordable clinics and offering water and electricity at low cost.
Earlier this month, Nearly 2,000 protesters gathered outside chanting “Fascist Modi, Go Back” before the showdown between demonstrators and police. A police official said that more than 100 protesters were detained, told AFP.
Police said they were forced to act after protesters tried to storm past barricades to stop Modi’s vehicle outside a stadium, where the leader again defended the law and insisted the demonstrators were “misguided”.

Protesters have burned effigies of the prime minister during his visit and brandished black flags — considered an insulting gesture in Indian society.
