Happy over return of the Congress in the national capital, party state president Ajaya Maken on Tuesday said that the people of Delhi have rejected the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in matter of 15 months.
Maken told ANI that the party has won in seats where it was considered to be traditionally weak.
“I am happy that Congress has bounced back in Delhi and in the matter of just 15 months the people of Delhi in a way have rejected Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The Congress has got four seats, these are the seats from where Congress has never won in the past,” said Maken.
“It is a big achievement for Congress workers I would like to thank Congress workers and the biggest credit should go to our leader Rahul Gandhi Ji as he contributed a lot to this victory,” he added.
The Congress and AAP shared honours in by-election to 13 wards in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD).
The Congress and AAP have won five wards each reducing the BJP to three seats.
The results of these by-polls will have a bearing affect on the upcoming municipal elections scheduled for 2017.
The by-elections were necessitated due to 13 councillors getting elected to the Delhi assembly in 2013 and 2015.
