In a stunning result, Aam Admi Party has not only proved the exit polls right, but gone beyond it - leading in 65 out of 70 seats, decimating BJP and ensuring that Congress won't even get a single seat.

Till 12.18 p.m, Election commission said that AAP had got 54 percent of the vote, winning over 3603090 votes.

After winning all Lok Sabha seats less than a year ago, BJP's vote share decreased to just 32.7%. For Congress, it was even worse - with just 9.3 percent of the seats.

While AAP is leading in 60 seats, it has already won 5 seats. This includes Ambedkar Nagar, Chandni Chowk and Model Town.

The first to concede defeat was Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who gave a phone call to AAP leader and CM-designate Arvind Kejriwal, promising all support. BJP's CM candidate Kiran Bedi also followed a little later.

Speaking to his party workers, Kerjriwal said that the defeat of Congress and BJP was due to their arrogance. "Please don't be arrogant. Otherwise, this will be our fate in 5 years," he said.
