62 out of 70! The Aam Aadmi Party was voted to power in Delhi for its third term since 2013, with a landslide 62 out of 70 seats and over 54 percent vote share.

The AAP rode to victory on a welfare-oriented campaign, while the BJP, who was seen as the main opposition, won the remaining 8 seats, campaigning on politics of polarisation and promises of “punishing the protesters of Shaheen Bagh”.

The Congress, however, failed to win even a single seat.

Today we’ll find out.
