Congratulations Kejriwal, development of Delhi will be top priority: Gautam Gambhir

New Delhi/IBNS: Delhi BJP MP Gautam Gambhir on Tuesday congratulated Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal after his Aam Aadmi Party once again registered a massive victory in the assembly polls and said development of the city and the welfare of the people will remain the top priority for everyone.

"Congratulations to @ArvindKejriwal on returning as the Chief Minister of Delhi and all the winning MLAs. I want to assure him that development of Delhi and welfare of citizens will be the top priority for everyone!" Gambhir, who exchanged bitter war-of-words with Kejriwal ahead of the polls tweeted.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo Arvind Kejriwal is set to become the Delhi Chief Minister for the third consecutive term as his party on Tuesday swept the assembly polls in the national capital.

 As per the latest report from the Election Commission (EC), the AAP is leading in 63 of 70 seats where elections were held on last Sunday.

 Though it had given a scare to the AAP by improving its tally after 9 am in the morning, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is presently is leading in just seven seats.

The worst news in the day came for the Congress as the grand old party, which had ruled Delhi for years, has drawn a blank replicating its terrible performance in the national capital five years ago.

While Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is leading in New Delhi constituency by over 14,000 votes, his deputy and AAP candidate from Patparganj, Manish Sisodia, is leading by 656 votes.

Sisodia's colleague Atishi, who had failed to defeat former cricketer Gautam Gambhir in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, is leading in Kalkaji by 5,077 votes.
