The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) received a massive mandate from the voters of Delhi to continue in power in the Capital’s municipal bodies–South MCD, North MCD and East MCD. The votes for elections to 270 wards were counted on Wednesday and the result showed massive popularity for the BJP and anti-incumbency for the Aam Aadmi Party. The ruling BJP won 181 seats in total but, all five Muslim candidates fielded by the party were defeated.

BJP gave tickets to Kuwar Rafi from Zakir Nagar, Sartaj Ahmed from Chauhan Banger, Sabra Malik from Mustafabad, Fahimuddin Saifi from Delhi Gate and Rubina Begum from Quraish Nagar. However, none of them was able to emerge victorious in the election.

The winners from these constituencies were all Muslim candidates themselves. Shoab Danish (Congress) from Zakir Nagar, Abdul Rehman (AAP) from Chauhan Banger, Shakila Begum (AAP) from Mustafabad, Aaley Mohammaed Iqbal (Congress) from Delhi Gate and Shaheen (AAP) from Quraish Nagar.
