Delhi MCD Election Results 2021 HIGHLIGHTS: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) put on a good show in the bye-elections to the Municipal Corporation of Delhi on Wednesday, winning four of the five seats. The party retained two seats — Kalyanpuri and Trilokpuri — and won Rohini-C, which was earlier held by BSP but was vacated when its councillor won a MLA election on an AAP ticket, and Shalimar Bagh (North), which was held by the BJP.

In a big upset, the Congress won the Chauhan Banger ward, which was held by the AAP. Its candidate Chaudhary Zubair Ahmad defeated AAP’s Mohammad Ishraq Khan by over 10,000 votes.

Voting was held in two wards — Rohini-C and Shalimar Bagh (North) — in the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC), and three wards — Trilokpuri, Kalyanpuri and Chauhan Banger — in the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) on February 28. While Shalimar Bagh (North) is reserved for women, Trilokpuri and Kalyanpuri are reserved for the Scheduled Caste (SC) category. The voter turnout recorded was 50.86 per cent.

On the AAP’s victory, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said, “The people of Delhi have once again voted in the name of work. Congratulations to all. The people are fed up with misrule of the BJP at MCD for 15 years. People are desperate to bring the AAP to rule the MCD.”

Congress leader Shaktisinh Gohil said the party’s victory reflected the hard work of the candidates.

Meanwhile, Delhi BJP president Adesh Gupta said, “We honour the mandate given by people. Losing Shalimar Bagh North is a matter of introspection. The shortcomings will be removed and I am sure BJP will win the elections for three municipal corporations in 2022.”

Delhi will see elections to all 272 MCD wards in 2022. (Explained: How to read MCD bypoll results)

50.86% voters turned out to vote in the MCD bypolls for five wards in the capital on Sunday. Special arrangements had been made for Covid positive voters, however, none turned up, said Delhi Election Commissioner S K Srivastava.

Voting was held in two wards — Rohini-C and Shalimar Bagh (North) — in the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) and three wards — Trilokpuri, Kalyanpuri and Chauhan Banger — in the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC).

The highest voting (59.19%) was in Kalyanpuri ward where the main candidates are Dhirendra from AAP, Siyaram Kanojia from BJP and Dharampal Maurya from Congress.

The lowest (43.23%) was in Shalimar Bagh (North) which fell vacant after the death of the BJP councillor. Here the contest is between BJP’s Surbhi Jaju, AAP’s Sunita Mishra and Congress’s Mamata.
