NEW DELHI: In the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, AAP did not lead in a single assembly constituency. Nine months later, it turned the tables on the BJP, wrestling Delhi for the third consecutive time. TOI does the analysis of how AAP achieved the impossible twice.

SEATS WON/SEATS CONTESTED
With Congress failing to register any wins, AAP’s losses turned into gains, though marginal, for BJP. The saffron party may find solace in the 7 percentage point gain in its strike rate.

HOW MANY VOTES IT TOOK TO WIN ONE SEAT
Though its votes per seat tally was more than five times AAP’s, BJP halved the number of votes it took to win each seat. AAP’s votes per seat figure rose marginally.

VOTES WON BY WINNING PARTY AS % OF TOTAL VOTING POPULATION
Amid a drop in turnout, AAP’s vote share took a minor hit, but not enough to knock it off its perch.

BY LOK SABHA SEATS
AAP swept all assembly segments in three Lok Sabha seats, despite not winning a single Delhi Lok Sabha seat in 2019. BJP’s assembly wins are concentrated in just two Lok Sabha seats.

RESERVED SEATS
AAP won 100% of Delhi’s 12 reserved Scheduled Caste seats, while BJP failed to win any for a second consecutive election
WOMEN MEMBERS
11.4% of the new assembly are women compared with 8.6% in 2015. Eight of the 79 women candidates won compared with six of 66 in the previous election.
RURAL/URBAN
A whopping 86.5% of urban seats (45 out of 52) went to AAP while five of BJP’s new seats are also urban. AAP won 17 of the 18 rural seat.
