Rajouri bypoll result a wake-up call for AAP ahead of MCD elections

According To India Vote Kar
If the Rajouri Garden bypoll was the semi-final to the April 23 municipal elections, AAP’s full-fledged debut in the civic politics of Delhi has run into inclement weather.

BJP-SAD candidate Manjinder Singh Sirsa bagged 40,602 votes, over 50 per cent of the total votes polled, the Congress’ Meenakshi Chandela finished second with 25,950 votes while AAP’s Harjeet Singh managed to get only 10,243 votes, forfeiting his deposit.

Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari described the success of the BJP-Akali candidate as a “reflection of the people’s mood in Delhi”, while Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken congratulated his party workers and advised them to continue the good work as the party would be the “dark horse in the MCD”.

Though deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia claimed the bypoll results would not have any bearing on the outcome of the municipal polls, experts said the it would “definitely” impact the municipal elections, because it has come “too close to civic polls”.
