New Delhi, March 3, 2021-
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday won four out of five seats in the municipal bypolls in Delhi. The Congress managed to win one seat, while the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) failed to get any.

The AAP secured two seats in East Delhi (Kalyanpuri and Trilokpuri municipal wards) and two in North Delhi (Rohini and Shalimar Bagh).

Delhi Chief Minister and AAP national president Avirnd Kejriwal congratulated the party workers for the win. He tweeted, “People in Delhi have once again voted for work. Congratulations to all. People were fed up with 15 years’ rampant corruption of BJP in MCD. Now people want to hand over MCD to AAP.”

AAP’s national spokesperson and MLA Raghav Chadha tweeted, “AAP wins semi final decisively, with roughly one year to go for MCD finals in 2022. It is time for Delhiites to put an end to the 15 year corruption plagued rule of BJP in MCD. Rajya Sarkar mein bhi Kejriwal, MCD mein bhi Kejriwal, Phir chalegi double engine ki Kejriwal sarkar”.
