After wining in the MCD elections Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday thanked the people of Delhi and said, “Thanks to the people of Delhi for this grand victory and many congratulations to all. Now all of us together have to make Delhi clean and beautiful.”

Earlier in the day, Delhi BJP Vice President Rajiv Babbar expressed confidence over the win of the BJP in the MCD elections and said, “We believe in democracy. The people of Delhi are very smart. We are not like Arvind Kejriwal who writes in advance that they are winning. The people notice everything, from AAP leader in jail to corruption.”

Babbar said, “We are going to cross 125 seats. It will be clear after an hour and we are confident that BJP is going make its mayor.”

The counting of the votes started from 8 am onwards for the Municipal Corporation of Delhi election.

The counting of the votes will take place from 8 am onwards and the winner of the high-stakes civic polls where the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) face each other.

Earlier on 4 December, the MCD elections were held in the national capital where 50 percent voter turnout and a total of 1,349 candidates were in the fray for 250 wards.

Moreover, the civic polls are largely seen as a three-way contest between the BJP, the AAP, and Congress.

According to the exit polls, Aam Aadmi Party will win the elections of the municipal polls.

However, in the MCD elections, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP will rule the municipal corporation of the national capital for the first time.

Furthermore, exit polls predicted a poor performance by Congress and once again the party has failed to revive itself in Delhi.
