NEW DELHI: On a day when the BJP suffered a humiliating defeat in Delhi, only three of their candidates managed to pull of a win amidst an AAP wave.
The three are Jagdish Pradhan (Mustafabad), Vijender Kumar (Rohini) and Om Prakash Sharma (Vishwas Nagar). Prime Minister Narendra Modi campaigned at two of these places: Rohini and Vishwas Nagar.
While Pradhan defeated the Congress by 6,031 votes, Kumar and Sharma overcame the Aam Aadmi Party challenge with margins of 5,367 and 10,158 votes respectively.
All other 67 BJP candidates -- including its chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi -- lost to the AAP.
