MCD Election 2017 Results: AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal accepts defeat, assures BJP of support

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday congratulated the BJP for its victory in the civic polls and assured his party's support for Delhi's betterment.

"I congratulate (the) BJP on their victory in all three MCDs (municipal corporations of Delhi). My government looks forward to working with the MCDs for the betterment of Delhi," Kejriwal tweeted.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) swept all three — east, south and north Delhi — civic corporations, winning 184 seats. The Aam Aadmi Party was a distant second having won 46 seats, while the Congress had won only 30 seats.

Voting for 270 of the 272 wards was held on Sunday. Polling for the two remaining wards was deferred due to the death of two candidates.
