New Delhi, May 24

Union minister Vijay Goel said the increase in the vote share of the BJP in the national capital suggested that Delhiites have shunned the negative politics of the AAP and had said "goodbye" to AAP convener and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

The vote share of the AAP has fallen from 33 per cent in 2014 general elections to 18.1 per cent this time; besides, two of the seven candidates - Pankaj Gupta in Chandni Chowk and Dilip Pandey in North East Delhi - of the AAP lost their deposits, he said.

Goel thanked the people of Delhi for making the BJP victorious in the Lok Sabha polls and said the party would win the coming assembly polls too so that the development works gain pace here with the double-engine government of the BJP - at the Centre and the state.

He said morning walkers in Lodhi Garden celebrated with him the grand comeback of the Prime Minister in the Lok Sabha elections.

Goel said just within Lodhi Garden he was stopped by four-five groups of morning walkers to congratulate him and convey their happiness on seeing Modi back to power again. There is a festival-like atmosphere in Delhi.
