After a year of uncertainty, Delhi will finally have a government and the message is loud and clear: 5 saal Kejriwal.

When results started pouring in around 8 am, both the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) were neck-to-neck. But those trends changed rapidly in the next half-hour. The AAP started consolidating on seats everywhere from outer Delhi to the smaller constituencies in central Delhi. By 12 noon, the AAP was leading in 64 seats and the BJP struggling to get to double digits. The Congress is not winning in any seat.

Trends at 11 am showed that Kejriwal was winning in the New Delhi assembly constituency by 19,000 votes. At the same time, Kiran Bedi, who is contesting on a BJP ticket from the party stronghold of Krishna Nagar, is just leading by 1,000 votes.

The results have put an end to what was a fierce election campaign between the BJP and the AAP. Kejriwal, for his part, has vowed to end corruption and bring basic amenities to every household. The BJP’s campaign was led jointly by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and its chief ministerial candidate Bedi.

Both PM Modi and Bedi tweeted to congratulate Kejriwal on his massive victory.

    I'll be interested to know if Kiran Bedi remains in politics and in BJP and join opposition in Delhi embly, in case she particularly if she loses as a candidate. Some news channel is reporting that Kiran Bedi will go to academics. We do need people like Kiran Bedi in politics, particularly in parties like BJP to reform these parties from within, work for a more productive and transparent democracy in India with viable and productive opposition (in case of Delhi).
