Among the BJP's many triumphs in the national election was retaining its "perfect 7" score in Delhi. Manoj Tiwari, the BJP Delhi chief and one of the winning candidates, said the next stop would be the assembly election next year. Manoj Tiwari defeated the Congress's Sheila Dikshit, a three-time former chief minister, in the North East Delhi constituency. Sheila Dikshit was considered one of her party's heavyweight candidates in Delhi. But Manoj Tiwari disagreed. "Rahul Gandhi took revenge against Sheila Dikshit by fielding her against me. She is 78 years old. She has become old now. Rahul Gandhi was angry with her and that is why this was done to her," said Mr Tiwari, a popular Bhojpuri actor.
