Delhi Election 2020:

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday won 62 seats out of a total of 70 assembly seats in Delhi where the polling was held on 8 February 2020. The counting of votes took place on Tuesday (11 February).

Although AAP returned to power with a thumping majority, the BJP improved its tally to 8 from 3 in the last elections. Congress, which had once enjoyed a 15-year-reign in the national capital, yet again scored zero this time.

Meanwhile, this was the third straight electoral setback for the BJP, which earlier failed to form state governments in Jharkhand and Maharashtra last year.
