Arvind Kejriwal Set to Return As Chief Minister
Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party created a political earthquake in Delhi after its formation in 2013. The party in its first ever election won 28 assembly seats and went on to form Government in Delhi with the help of Congress. However, the government lasted only for 50 days and Delhi was again thrown in for election. The second election for Delhi Assembly was completely fought under the shadow of Modi wave, but Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party sailed through the election registering one of the massive victories in the history of Delhi. His party won 67 of 70 Assembly seats and Arvind Kejriwal became the Chief Minister of Delhi once again and this time with majority on its own.
Kejriwal and team could not maintain their political lead in Delhi for long. Two years down the line, in Delhi corporation election Aam Aadmi Party was completely decimated. The loss did put up a question mark on the future of Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi politics.
The party of 67 assembly seats received a major setback again in Lok Sabha election. Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party failed to win a single Lok Sabha in Delhi. Added to it, the party lost three of its four Lok Sabha seats that it had won in Punjab in 2014. The loss has casted a doubt on return of Arvind Kejriwal as Chief Minister of Delhi in 2020.
