Aam Aadmi Party demolished the BJP’s fort in Delhi, despite the huge team of the state BJP including Union Ministers, Chief Ministers of many states, speedy rallies, abundant resources. The main reason for this is believed to be the trustworthy face of Arvind Kejriwal. At the same time, the second line of AAP leaders including Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, MLA Durgesh Pathak, Dilip Pandey, Saurabh Bhardwaj, Atishi were also seen close to the people of Delhi. On the other hand, like in the last assembly elections, this time also BJP could not provide any alternative leadership to the people of Delhi. Instead of a face, the BJP was fighting the MCD elections as a party. As a result, BJP failed to save 15 years of power.

Those who understand the country’s electoral politics closely say that usually people get easily mobilized behind a trustworthy leadership. A trustworthy face in the form of a Prime Minister has been the key to BJP’s success at the national level, whereas in states where the BJP does not have a strong leadership, it loses. Same thing happened in Delhi MCD elections. The BJP did not learn a lesson from the defeat in the last assembly elections. BJP could not provide any credible leadership equal to Kejriwal in Delhi. Instead, the chief ministers of other states including the central leaders could not directly connect with the people of Delhi.

On the other hand, AAP carried forward its campaign with the help of local leaders. Even the Punjabi dominated seats did not field leaders from Punjab. Along with the candidates, local MLAs and workers continued to connect with the voters in the door-to-door campaign. During this, more focus was raised on the same issues including cleanliness, which MCD had failed to fulfill earlier. This method of campaigning has made a big impact on the voters and has given AAP the key to power in the MCD.

mcd election lesson for you too
Political analyst and DU professor Chandrachud Singh says that AAP has defeated BJP in the MCD elections by giving reliable leadership, but AAP’s MCD elections trying to go national level also have a deep lesson. As per the initial figures, AAP has not been able to get the one-sided vote of Muslims in Delhi. This may probably mean that the common Muslim voter is not able to differentiate it much from BJP in the situation where AAP is standing today, that’s why their vote could not go to AAP even if Congress was not an alternative to BJP. . Instead, a major part of the Muslim vote went to the Congress. In the places where AAP candidates have won, local politics has dominated the voting.

Congress fought without leadership, candidates were based on credibility
Like the last assembly elections, the Congress fought the MCD elections without a leader. The central leadership did not contest the Delhi elections. At the same time, the state Congress leaders also kept taking more interest in Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra instead of MCD elections. The Congress had left its candidates to their fate. The candidates fought on the basis of their credibility. In nine wards where local political equations coincided with the disenchantment of Muslim voters with AAP, they won. Apart from this, it could not even save its mass base in Delhi.
