    The PPP behind the AAP victory in Delhi

    The hat-trick scored by Arvind Kejriwals’ Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi Assembly polls hinges on three Ps – personality, programme and party.


    The results establish Kerjriwal’s credentials as a serious contender in the political arena and the win gives AAP, a relative newbie, a firm footing in Indian politics.

    Despite a spirited and combative campaign, the BJP seems poised to only slightly improve its tally from the abysmal three seats it won in 2015 to seven this time round. This despite top BJP leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP chief J P Nadda, virtually carpet bombing the state with rallies, meetings and others kinds of campaigns.
