New Delhi:

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday won the Delhi Assembly polls with a thumping majority. The party won 62 seats out of 70. The Bharatiya Janata Party, on the other hand, managed to garner only 8 seats whereas the Congress drew blank. Kejriwal, during his poll campaign listed the numbers of schemes that his government implemented in last 5 years. Starting from free electricity to free bus rides, the AAP convenor left no stones unturned to popularise his government's achievements. But his visit to Hanuman mandir caught the attention of most of the Delhiites. Confident that the minority vote would stay with him, Kejriwal chose quasi-Hindutva. If the BJP talked Ram Mandir, he recited the Hanuman Chalisa and made visible trips to Hanuman temples in the national capital. Did this tactic help the Delhi CM to surge into power? Deepak Chaurasia debates this issue tonight.
