The events occurred as expected with Arvind Kejrwal’s Aam Aadmi Party achieving a landslide victory in the Delhi Assembly elections on Tuesday. As predicted in most of the exit polls on the conclusion of polling on February 8, the party went on to win over 60 seats out of 70. There were wishes galore for the CM-designate and his party, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi leading the messages and numerous other politicians from various parties sending their good wishes.
Even celebrities from the film industry congratulated Arvind Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party.
Actor and Congress leader Urmila Matondkar termed the victory as ‘sweeping’ and against ‘huge odds.’ She expressed delight over ‘Kaam Ki Rajneeti’ (politics of work) winning. She added that it was also the victory of the people of Delhi who voted for development.

An actor, who has fought for AAP before, Gul Panag hailed the ‘fantastic, clean campaign’, while highlighting how they made their work do the talking amid ‘grave provocation and polarisation.’

Saqib Saleem, while congratulating, quipped how he’d have both biryani and poha to celebrate the victory. Calling Delhi her ‘Jaan’, Gauahar Khan had a light-hearted take on the ‘landslide win’, saying how her mother always told her that ‘AAP is the best word.’
