Unique Delhi and AAP win cannot be replicated in other states
GN Bureau | February 10, 2015
Delhi has been different and will be different. West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee should remember this. She called the AAP’s landslide win in the Delhi Assembly polls as a "turning point" in India's current political landscape and a big defeat for those indulging in vendetta politics.
"This is a victory for the people and a big defeat for the arrogant and those who are doing political vendetta & spreading hate among people," the West Bengal Chief Minister tweeted.

In another tweet, she said, "Delhi election is turning point of present political situation. Shows political vendetta has no place in a democracy. Country needed this change."

However, Mamata needs to listen to the reasonable analysis of AAP’s Yogendra Yadav and desist from building castles in the air.
Speaking during a debate on electronic media, he said that the assumption that the AAP win was more Delhi retorting to BJP, was wrong, saying that Delhi had voted for the Aam Aadmi Party because they had not let the voter out of sight and done intensive groundwork - from meeting voters door-to-door to assuring them that they have their act together this time.
The Delhi election results are not in any way, indication of the fact that Modi doesn't hold sway over voters in states like Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, Yadav said on Tuesday.
"I do not agree with opposition leaders who are becoming smug and think that this means that BJP will lose in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. Modi has not lost his popularity and it would be completely wrong to think that," he told NDTV.
Delhi is different. It is a pampered city and has seen development. It is not looking for development that was promised by the BJP and prime minister Narendra Modi. It voted in the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as the city state wants to end corruption and unresponsive administration.
Delhi’s electorate is cosmopolitan in every sense that a dictionary can define and is completely urban. The AAP win goes beyond caste and other considerations. This cannot be replicated in other states.
