Delhi Assembly Election Result 2020: Arvind Kejriwal has made a stunning comeback in Delhi. His Aam Aadmi Party has won 62 of 70 assembly seats with close to 54 per cent vote share, similar to its performance in 2015, ensuring that he retains the CM’s chair for the third term. The people of Delhi have voted decisively for the AAP, and this can be said by looking at the margin of votes that some of the winning candidates have managed to get.

Four of AAP’s candidates have won their seats by over 50000 votes, which is a huge margin in assembly polls of Delhi. For instance, Shoaib Iqbal of AAP has won from Matia Mahal constituency by over 50241 votes but the total votes polled here is 88570. The AAP candidate has got close to 76 per cent vote share. The biggest winning margin has been recorded by Amanatullah Khan who has got over 80 per cent of the total votes polled in Okhla.

Five AAP candidates who won with biggest margin

Okhla: AAP’s sitting MLA Amanatullah Khan defeated Braham Singh of the Bharatiya Janata Party by 91083 votes. Amanatullah had won this seat in 2015 by 64532 votes. This time, his vote share shot up substantially and one of the reasons could be an anti-CAA protest at Shaheen Bagh, which voted for the AAP.

Matia Mahal: This was another Muslim-dominated constituency where AAP candidate Shoaib Iqbal has won by over 50000 votes. Iqbal has defeated Ravinder Gupta of the Bharatiya Janata Party by 50241 votes. In 2015, Asim Ahmed Khan had won this seat by a margin of 26096 votes.

Sultanpur Majra: AAP’s Mukesh Kumar Ahlawat has defeated Ram Chander Chawriya of the Bharatiya Janata Party by over 48052 votes. This time AAP had replaced its sitting MLA from this assembly seat. In 2015, the AAP had fielded Sandeep Kumar who had won this seat by 64439 votes.
