New Delhi:

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has defeated the BJP in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi elections (MCD Election).

With this, the BJP's rule over the Municipal Corporation of Delhi for the last 15 years came to an end.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has won 134 seats in the elections.

BJP came second with 104 seats.

After AAP's victory, Raghav Chadha said that the people of Delhi have rejected those who do negative politics.

The people of Delhi have also given a certificate of honesty to Kejriwal and AAP.


In a special conversation with NDTV, Raghav Chadha, Rajya Sabha MP from Punjab and election in-charge of Gujarat, said that with the crown of victory comes a lot of responsibilities.

Like the people of Delhi handed over the key of the Vidhansabha to Arvind Kejriwal, the elder son of their family.

Similarly, the people of Delhi have now handed over the keys of the Municipal Corporation to the eldest son of their family, Arvind Kejriwal.

Chadha further said, 'Like he showed by working in electricity, education and health, now it is his turn to do the same in MCD.

We now have to make Delhi clean.

Chadha further said, people voted to bring you in MCD.

In such a situation, apparently the mayor will also belong to you.

A message has emerged from this election that while rejecting the politics of negative politics, the politics of littering, the politics of sting operation and the politics of abuses, people have also called the BJP a failure.

The people of Delhi have shown the green signal to Arvind Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party.

You have also been given a certificate of honesty.

Raghav Chadha also gave his opinion on the better performance of BJP in the wards of Manish Sisodia's seat Patparganj and in the wards of Satyendar Jain's seat lodged in Tihar Jail.

He said, 'I think it would be dishonest to judge a state election on the basis of one ward of one assembly seat.

In the morning, BJP people were thinking that they are winning the election.

Now that AAP has won the election, the BJP people will at least catch hold of something and say it, won't they?

I think we should not pay attention to these things and talk about work.

Raghav Chadha told that we won Manish Sisodia's assembly seat in 2020 also with a very small margin.

It is possible that due to local factors, there is a close fight there.

This does not mean that the allegations made by the BJP have any merit.

On the mayor's question, Raghav Chadha replied to the BJP that Atal Bihari Vajpayee had himself resigned and brought down his government because he had one MP less.

Now the same BJP openly talks about toppling the government and running Operation Lotus.

My question to BJP is that when the public has rejected you by not voting, then on what basis do you claim the mayorship.

Let us tell you that a big claim was made by the BJP leaders regarding the Mayor seat.

Referring to Chandigarh, BJP leader Amit Malviya said, 'Now it is the turn to elect the mayor of Delhi.

All this will now depend on the voting of councilors in the mayoral election.

Let me tell you for example, there is a mayor of BJP in Chandigarh.

BJP leader Tejinder Pal Bagga said, 'BJP will once again become mayor of Delhi.'

Challenging this claim of BJP, AAP leader and Environment Minister of Delhi Gopal Rai said that we challenge, BJP should show its mayor in Delhi.
