Chhattisgarh election results: AAP fails to expand outside Delhi again

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was unable to make a mark outside Delhi once again as the party failed to achieve the desired number of votes in Chhattisgarh where counting of votes for Assembly election were done on Tuesday. The party fielded candidates on 85 seats in the state, where several failed to get even 300 votes. Bhanu Prakash, fighting on the party’s ticket from Chandrapur constituency struggled to bag 144 votes.

AAP's leadership refrained from commenting on the party's performance in the elections. However, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said the poll results indicated the countdown towards the end of PM Narendra Modi's rule.

Some leaders of the Aam Aadmi Party even said the party did not wholeheartedly participate in the polls and the exercise was an attempt to keep the organisation intact across most of the states.

According to the results of the Chhattisgarh elections, 45 out of the total candidates from the party could not even bag 1,000 votes, while 4 candidates achieved a minimum of 3,000 votes in the state.

The maximum votes were bagged by Komal Hupendi, who fought from the Bhanupratapur constituency and achieved 8,215 votes in the election.

The NOTA or none of the above option appeared to have outperformed several political parties, including the AAP and the Samajwadi Party, which contested the assembly polls in the five states, including Mizoram.
