In its 2015 campaign, the BJP had Smriti Irani and the former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj hit the campaign trail addressing several rallies in South and North West Delhi. As a part of its campaign, the BJP also released a series of newspaper advertisements targeting the Aam Aadmi Party.
The 2015 Delhi Legislative assembly saw the Aam Aadmi Party secured an absolute majority in the assembly, winning 67 of the 70 seats. The rallies and roadshows of Arvind Kejriwal while campaigning in 2015 were a great success, drawing large enthusiastic crowds.
