‘Victory of democracy’, says Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann on Delhi mayoral poll results


Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Wednesday dubbed the win of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the Delhi mayoral poll as the “victory of democracy.” Mann also praised Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for his “spirit of fighting for the rights of people.”         AAP councillor Shelly Oberoi defeated BJP councillor Rekha Gupta in the mayoral poll in the national capital.  

“Victory of democracy…congratulations to the people of Delhi…salute to Arvind Kejriwal ji’s spirit of fighting for the rights of people,” said Mann in a tweet in Punjabi.

The election took place against the backdrop of a recent Supreme Court order ruling against the voting rights of 10 aldermen appointed by Lt Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena.
