Kejriwal’s historic win: Kiran Bedi out

New Delhi: On February 14, Arvind Kejriwal takes the chief ministerial oath for the second time. Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party has scored a historic victory in the Delhi assembly election having won 67 out of Delhi's 70 seats. BJP's vote share is almost unchanged from last time at 33 per cent. BJP could manage only three seats; its chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi lost from a BJP safe seat. Congress, in complete decimation, has lost 15 per cent in vote share and won no seat in Delhi. Mr.Kejriwal today warned his party men against arrogance. "Don't get arrogant, the Congress and the BJP were defeated because of arrogance. We have to do a lot of work for Delhi. We will always walk the path of truth,," Mr Kejriwal said in his first remarks to exultant party workers at AAP's central Delhi office. Counting 2 Counting Reaction of Mr. Rohit Gadia, Founder & CEO, CapitalVia Global Research: “An anti-corruption party is headed for a stunning victory in the Delhi state elections in a huge setback for India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi. We are expecting that the reform process will not stall, It’s good to have AAP on the winning side in Delhi as for this will act as a counter mechanism, AAP in Delhi and BJP at centre this will help drive the reform process on a track. Both the parties will try to prove themselves, AAP being a maiden party will try to give their best and overcome the failures of past. The market will continue to be volatile for time being as it has already discounted the news and has been giving correction since past few days. In our view regarding the correction in the market after result outcome, if we see the fast few days movement then we can figure it out that market has already corrected around 8 % as the news has already discounted. So further we didn’t see any such significant correction in the market on the down side, market will continue to be volatile and likely to remain in consolidation phase for the next few trading sessions. Investors should concentrate on fundamentally strong companies with great long-term growth potential and use the strategy of buying in dips.”

BJP should learn a lesson from Delhi poll results ! Now, no more promises, only actions to fulfil them ! Since Congress persistently implemented anti-Hindu policies, Hindus handed over single-handed power to Mr. Narendra Modi from the entire nation. After assuming power, BJP was expected to fulfil a large scale of expectations of Hindus; however, none of the promises made by BJP appeared to have been fulfilled in last 9 months. BJP has side-lined most of the aspects such as legislation to impose a ban on cow-slaughter throughout the nation, rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandits, preventing intrusion of Bangladeshi encroachers, building Shriram temple, scrapping Article 370 etc. As a result, people voted in favour of 'AAP'. At least now, BJP should learn lesson from Delhi poll results and fulfil the promises made earlier, so is the demand by Hindus. This is a timely warning for Modi Government that their position should not become like that of Congress of today,  Ramesh Shinde, National Spokesperson, Hindu Janjagruti Samiti said.
