"People of Delhi are determined to form a strong government led by the BJP for development of the city," city BJP president Manoj Tiwari said after victory of the party in the Lok Sabha polls.

"The AAP has been pushed to a distant third in Delhi in the Lok Sabha polls. Delhi people have rejected politics of lies," Tiwari said.

Tiwari further claimed that the people of Delhi have made up their minds "to replace the AAP dispensation with a strong government under the BJP in 2020."

"The negative politics practised by negative-minded leaders of Delhi has been rejected by the people and they are determined to form a strong government after Assembly elections," he said.

Tiwari attributed BJP's victory in Delhi to the works of the Narendra Modi government. The victory margins were massive this time. BJP's West Delhi candidate Parvesh Singh Verma won by a margin 5,78,486 votes, breaking his own victory margin record of 2014.

He was followed by North West Delhi candidate Hans Raj Hans who defeated his AAP rival Gugan Singh by a margin of 5,53,897 votes. Former cricketer Gautam Gambhir defeated Congress' Arvinder Singh Lovely by a margin of 3,91,222 votes.
