Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar on Tuesday hailed the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for its win in the 2020 Delhi assembly elections. 

“Congratulations to Arvind Kejriwal-ji and AAP workers for achieving a 'sweeping victory' in the polls! (sic)” Pawar tweeted.

While talking to the reporters, the 79-years-old leader said the results of Delhi assembly polls indicated that the “winds of change” were blowing in the country, adding that the people of the national capital have rejected the BJP who tried to polarise voters. 

“The results of Delhi elections are not surprising to me. The BJP played the communal card while trying to polarise votes but the Delhi people rejected it. This indicates winds of change in the country,” NCP chief Sharad Pawar said. 

Pawar further said that despite the rule of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the country, everyone in Delhi is talking about Arvind Kejriwal. The people of Delhi think that Kejriwal has solved the issues concerning their families and the education of their children, Pawar added. 

“This result is not only about Delhi alone as people from all states live there. The public is convinced that the BJP is leading the country into crisis,” said Pawar. 

The NCP supremo further stated that BJP faced similar defeat in Maharashtra assembly elections in 2019 and will face the same in the next Lok Sabha elections as well. 

“You see what happened in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh. I don’t think this series of defeat faced by the BJP will stop now,” Pawar said. 

While citing the example of Maharashtra, Pawar urged the regional parties to come together to keep BJP out of power.

In Maharashtra, Shiv Sena ditched its 35-year-old ally – BJP – and formed an alternative government with Congress and NCP to keep the BJP out of power. The three parties worked a ‘common minimum programme’ to form a stable government in the state. 

Arvind Kejriwal was elected as Delhi Chief Minister for the third time and AAP won 62 seats in the assembly elections while BJP only managed to get eight seats only.
