Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party today reduced the BJP to a three-member opposition in the Delhi assembly.
AAP won 67 of Delhi's 70 seats.
The only three BJP candidates who survived the AAP tsunami were Jagdish Pradhan, Vijender Gupta and Om Prakash Sharma. The Congress scored a duck for the first time.
Jagdish Pradhan won in Mustafabad, Vijender Gupta in Rohini and Om Prakash Sharma in Vishwas Nagar.
Any party needs at least 10 per cent of the house strength to qualify for Leader of Opposition. The BJP has not even won seven seats, which means, there will be no opposition party in the assembly and no Leader of Opposition.
On social media, the vanishing opposition in Delhi became a recurring theme. "The entire Delhi opposition can fit in a Nano car," said one tweet. Another revised it to an "auto-rickshaw."
