Reportedly arvind kejriwal, an engineer, civil servant and Delhi's man with a development agenda, took over the thrones of delhi for the third time on tuesday by getting 62 out of 70 constituencies into AAP's kitty, leaving the bharatiya janata party with seven and decimating the Congress.
Meanwhile the Aam Aadmi party seemed to go into a pre-2014 mood with the party head office sporting a large hoarding with the message: "Associate with AAP for nation building". However, some experts opined that it will still take time for AAP national convenor to emerge as a "national leader". Furthermore the experts said kejriwal would need to have a pan-India base to establish himself as a national leader. The AAP is at present recognised by the election commission as a state party. It emerged as the principal opposition in punjab in 2017.
However it was stated that its national ambitions suffered a setback when its campaigns in goa and in the last two lok sabha elections were unsuccessful. It won four lok sabha seats in punjab in 2014 and just one in 2019, while delhi voters rejected it both times.
