As Balloons Deflated Outside Kejriwal's House, So Did AAP's Hopes

The third gender candidate, Mumtaj of Bahujan Samaj Party (BJP) managed to get just 1,137 votes from Bucho Mandi assembly seat which was won by Congress candidate Pritam Singh. 11 am: Lone Dog Graces Red Carpet

By 11 am, the mood outside Kejriwal's house had witnessed a sea change - the music had stopped, top party leaders had disappeared, and a lone dog was witnessed gracing the carpet outside.
All the groundwork indeed had its impact with the party attracting nearly 24% vote share, trailing the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) by just about 1%. We were asked to prepare for a celebration like never before.

Dr Oscar Rebello, AAP leader said the party will decide whether to continue in Goa or not.

With the election results not in Aam Aadmi Party's favour, party's national joint secretary Akshay Marathe said it is the beginning of a long fight and that it would take a long time to make the kind of impact his party wants to make in the country. AAP has contested its first assembly polls in these states and the outcome will further enable the party to expand its footprint beyond Delhi where it is now in power. While predicting a lead for the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, C-Voter forecasted at least two to four wins. "Once the result was clear, Arvind asked everyone to leave the room and leave him alone". Annoyed by the constant interference of the Centre in governing Delhi - something that Kejriwal had left no stone unturned to allege at every given opportunity - Punjab promised the party an opportunity to display whether it could govern a full state and how well it could do it. He wanted to counter BJP in Punjab and Goa without actually governing in Delhi. In Punjab, the AAP has won 20 seats, marginally ahead of the BJP-Akali combine. Look at what he has done for Delhi in the last two years that he has been the chief minister. But Pathak misled him about the ground reality of the state, even about the vote prediction. Moreover, the party workers in Punjab are highly disgruntled with the party's performance. I thank all the party workers for their hard work. "In fact, they did not even have the voter list of each constituency till about three days before the polling day, a practice that is done nearly a month ago".
