Taking to his Twitter, Sukhbir Singh Badal extended best wishes to Arvind Kejriwal for his 'New innings as Chief Minister'.
AAP members have flocked the streets of Delhi to celebrate the party's early electoral victory. AAP leader Raghav Chadha, who won from the Rajendra Nagar Constituency, held a celebratory gathering outside AAP's office on Tuesday afternoon.
Loktantrik Janata Dal (LJD) Chief Sharad Yadav congratulated the Aam Aadmi Party and Arvind Kejriwal, stating this victory to be bigger than the previous one. With 672 candidates in the fray, the Delhi Assembly Elections saw a fierce election campaign of the ruling AAP and BJP while Congress remained almost absent.
Taking to his Twitter, Yadav slammed BJP's 'hateful rhetoric', stating that the people of Delhi rejected BJP. His tweet read as, "Many many congratulations to Arvind Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party. This time their seats are less, but I consider this victory to be bigger than the previous victory. The hateful rhetoric by the BJP has crossed all the lines and despite all their efforts, the people of Delhi have rejected them."
श्री @ArvindKejriwal और @AamAadmiParty को बहुत बहुत बधाई। इस बार इनकी सीटें तो कम जरुर हो रही हैं मगर मैं इस जीत को पिछली जीत से भी बड़ा मानता हूं,भाजपा द्वारा नफरत भरी बयानबाजी से सभी हदे पार करना और उनके सभी प्रयत्न-साधनों के बावजूद दिल्ली की जनता ने उन्हें ख़ारिज किया है।— SHARAD YADAV (@SharadYadavMP) February 11, 2020
