NEW DELHI: Delhi Assembly elections, swept cleanly by the Aam Admi Party, has proved that conventional style of politics is gradually losing grounds in the urban India.
The party, which was once laughed at by many as just a crowd, has scripted new chapter in country's political history by winning more than 90 per cent seats in the capital city.
Being closely written off by the political analysts after its short-lived 49 days governance in Delhi last year, Arvind Kejriwal led party has put up a dramatic come back and exhibited a spectacular show in Delhi, by routing BJP and Congress in the high-pitched electoral battles.
AAP's impressive victory has virtually made the main stream parties brainstorm where they went wrong.
BJP, after winning nearly half a dozen states in the last one year under its mascot Narendra Modi, has failed to stand against a relatively newbie political group and has been reduced to a single digit.
The poll results clearly prove that the educated Delhi voters were not impressed with the Modi Juggernaut and wanted a change in the conventional politics.
The Congress, on the other hand, sprang no surprise and proved to be a big zero at a place where the party ruled 15 years until not so long ago.
While Kejriwal's show of honesty by apologising for his hurried resignation impressed many of the middle-class voters, the party could also meticulously cash in on the internal struggle in BJP after the latter's induction of Kiran Bedi.
Electing Kejriwal for the second time as Chief Minister, Delhi voters have given a clear warning that the old-fashioned frameworks in electoral politics need to be revamped and overhauled.
The Delhi elections may also be an indication that the new urban voters in India refuse to be bewitched with either personal charisma or historical richness.
The AAP triumph might have its own potential to create a wave across the country by upsetting all the principal parties and forcing them do rigorous introspection.
