In the 2015 Assembly polls, AAP won 67 of the 70 seats while the BJP could win only three. Congress, which was in power for 15 years in Delhi from 1998 to 2013, failed to get any seat.
Kejriwal govt is set to tom-tom about its achievements in last 5 years but BJP and Congress are looking to impress upon people that AAP dispensation didn’t deliver on promises and only tried to fool the people all these years.
