By now India and a majority of the foreign countries who keep a keen interest in the country are aware that Aam Aadmi Party is back for a second term with a sweeping majority in Delhi. In the recently concluded Delhi elections, AAP has got a thumping majority winning 67 of Delhi’s 70 seats.
Life is going to come to a full circle for Arvind Kejriwal, founder of AAP who would be taking oath as chief minister at the Ramlila grounds on Saturday, February 14. It was this day last year that he had resigned for not having adequate numbers in the assembly to push an anti-corruption bill.
This time the 46-year-old politician has got a complete majority to run the capital of India for the next five years.This Delhi election has been a landmark one since a whopping 53 percent share of the votes favoured AAP. Which also means that the opposition benches in the Delhi assembly will only have three seats for BJP legislators; Congress, the party that ruled Delhi earlier for 15 years has won no seats.
Both Facebook and Twitter reflected peoples’ ecstasy since the early part of yesterday. Delhi Legislative Assembly has been trending on Facebook and hashtags like #AAPSweep, #AAPKiDilli and #KisKiDilli have been dominating Twitter trends. There isn’t an iota of doubt that Delhi elections like the last year’s Lok Sabha elections, was fought aggressively on social media too.
The election results sent out a clear message to Kiran Bedi, BJP’s CM candidate, Narendra Modi and BJP realize that it will need to introspect why it could manage to win only three seats in Delhi.
AAP created a tsunami offline by getting a thunderous victory and on social media it was able to create a similar impact. In just one day Twitter data informs that the platform witnessed 101 tweets per minute, making it total of more than 347K tweets yesterday.
