Delhi MCD Election 2021 Result: The by-polls for the Municipal Corporation of Delhi has brought cheer for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the main opposition in the BJP-ruled MCD. According to the latest reports, AAP has won four out of five seats that went to the polls. The by-elections were held on Sunday for Ward No 32N (Rohini-C), Ward No 62N (Shalimar Bagh North), Ward No 02-E (Trilokpuri), Ward No 08-E (Kalyanpuri) and Ward No 41-E (Chauhan Bangar). While the Congress has won Chauhan Bangar seat, the AAP managed to win the rest four. The results are being seen as a setback for the BJP which enjoys a majority in all three municipal corporations of Delhi.

The AAP has bagged Ward No 32N, (Rohini-C), Ward No 02-E (Trilokpuri), Ward No 08-E (Kalyanpuri) and Ward No 62N, (Shalimar Bagh North). More than 50 per cent voting was recorded in the bypolls held on February 28. Of the five wards, four were earlier held by the AAP while Shalimar Bagh North was held by the BJP.

Reacting to the victory of AAP candidates, Deputy CM Manish Sisodia congratulated the party workers. “Congratulations to the Aam Aadmi Party workers on winning 4 out of 5 seats in the MCD by-election. The people of Delhi are now frustrated by the BJP’s rule. Public in next year’s MCD election will bring honest and hard working @ArvindKejriwal’s rule,” tweeted Sisodia in Hindi.

The winners will have only one year term as the elections for the 272 wards of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi will be held in early next year (2022). The bypolls may reflect the mood of the voters ahead of the 2022 elections.
