BJP leader Manoj Tiwari, who was ahead from North East Delhi seat in Delhi has won the battle against Congress’ Sheila Dikshit and Aam Admi Party’s Dilip Pandey.
He won the seat against Sheila Dikshit by almost 3,40,000 votes, according to reports.
Manoj, who is also the BJP chief of Delhi and the sitting MP from the seat, ran an effective campaign against both the Congress and the AAP and was able to cash in on the Modi wave. Delhi went to polls on the penultimate phase 6 on May 12. AAP and Congress’ failure to form a pre-poll alliance and the BJP’s extensive campaigning helped the saffron party win maximum seats in Delhi, as suggested by the recent poll surveys.
Confident of winning most of the Lok Sabha seats in Delhi, Tiwari had recently said the BJP would win all the seven seats in Delhi with huge margins.
