Taking to Twitter, Kishor wrote, “Thank you Delhi for standing up to protect the soul of India!”

Kishor was roped in by the AAP to help the party with election strategy ahead of the polls. As per the current trend, the AAP was leading at 58 out of 70 seats while the BJP was leading in 12 seats. However, the most shocking development for the AAP was its senior leader and the deputy chief minister in the previous government, Manish Sisodia, trailing for the most part of early rounds of counting. He later managed to take a lead over his BJP rival.
In 2015, the AAP had won 67 out of 70 seats. Like 2015, the Congress appears to have drawn a blank even this time around.
