Twitter users who marvelled at the unforeseen BJP clean sweep in Delhi could not hold themselves back from taking a dig or two at Kejriwal and his party's performance
The vote counting on Thursday revealed that the Bharatiya Janata Party was leading in all seven parliamentary constituencies of the national capital. In fact, three of its candidates were ahead of their rivals by over a lakh votes.Eventually, AAP chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal conceded defeat and congratulated the saffron party for its sweeping victory in Delhi.
I congratulate Sh Narendra Modi for this historic win and look forward to working together for the betterment of the people of Delhi.

Even AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj wished Prime Minister Narendra Modi the best in his future endeavours and said: “In a democracy, the mandate of the people is considered to be very powerful. We respect the mandate of India and congratulate the BJP for its victory. We offer Prime Minister Narendra Modi best wishes for his future tenure.”
The seven candidates fielded by AAP in New Delhi were -- Brijesh Goyal, Pankaj Gupta, Raghav Chadha, Atishi, Dilip Pandey, Gugan Singh, and Balbir Singh Jakhad.
However, Twitter users who marvelled at the unforeseen BJP clean sweep in Delhi could not hold themselves back from taking a dig or two at Kejriwal. From taunting him for being slapped by voters to taking a dig at the dismal vote count, the tweets were based on a wide range of issues.

What a fall of Kejriwal. Started as a revolutionary, ended up like a buffoon. I wish, he had respected the trust and mandate of the people of Delhi and delivered. While I’m happy for Modi, no opposition is not the most ideal state for India as a democracy.

The most depressing part of the election is AAP leading in one seat. #ElectionResults2019

The most unfortunate thing in this election is.. Kejriwal ji ko utani seat bhi nahi mil rahi jitne unhen Campaign mein thappad mile.. Bechara faalut mein pit gaya. Democracy is so overrated. #ExitPolls
