The party volunteers had played a crucial role in party massive success in 2015 Assembly Polls in the national Capital.
It came days after party party’s poll debacle in the recently held national polls 2019. The Aam Aadmi Party had fielded candidates in Delhi, Chandigarh, Goa, Punjab, Anadman and Nicobar. While it has also stitched an alliance with Dushyant Chautala‘s JJP to contest 3 seats in Haryana. It had fielded its Candidates on some seats in Bihar, Odisha and Uttar Pradesh.
Party had contested the polls on almost 40 seats across 9 states and UTs.
However, in a big embarrassment only its candidate from Sangrur in Punjab, Bhagwant Mann, could win.
The bigger embarrassment for the party is its humiliating defeat in the national capital where it had in 2015 Assembly polls won 67 seats in 70 member assembly. Results of national polls came to AAP as a big setback who lost all 7 Lok Sabha Seats in the national capital. The party slips to the third spot in 5 seats while 3 of its candidate in the national capital lost their deposits.
The party in the national capital secured over 18% of the vote share, which is 15% less than it got in 2014 national polls.
