The ruling party in Centre is all set to win MCD polls with a huge margin. BJP is heading for a landslide victory as it is leading in all the three – North, South and East Delhi Municipal Corporations. A total of 53.58 per cent voter turnout was recorded in MCD polls.

The polls were held on April 23 and saw a six-cornered fight between Aam Aadmi Party, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Indian National Congress (INC),  Swaraj India,  JD(U), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Samajwadi Party (SP).

Here’s how leaders from different political parties reacted to MCD poll results:

Sheila Dikshit, Congress

“We are going through a bad time. I am not sure what went wrong. We should have campaigned aggressively. All I can say is that I was not asked to campaign.”

Ajay Maken, Congress 

“It is a reasonable revival of the Congress but I had hoped for something better than this. I had expected to perform a little better.  So, as the president of Delhi Congress, I take moral responsibility and offer to resign from my post. We have fought the election on positive issues. We are satisfied that we raised reasonable issues in the election. I was given free hand during my two-year tenure as Delhi Congress president in organisational appointments,” said Maken.

Manoj Tiwari, BJP:

“Delhi chief minister and AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal must resign,” said Tiwari after on the MCD poll results. He also promised that the BJP, which has been heading the civic bodies for a decade, will now clean the city in four months.

“We will make Delhi a clean city in the next four months. It will be a hygienic, dirt and disease free city. The AAP has failed the people of Delhi. People are facing a lot of difficulties. Kejriwal must resign. People want him to resign,” Tiwari said.

Amit Shah, BJP:

“I thank Delhi’s voters for the BJP’s win. The people of Delhi have rejected negative politics, the politics of excuses,” Shah said.

Gopal Rai, AAP:

“This is an EVM wave, not a Modi wave.” He also alleges that EVMs or electronic voting machines were rigged to help the BJP win the MCD elections.

Manish Sisodia, AAP

Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said, “BJP’s win was impossible without EVM tampering.”
