Kejriwal wins Delhi with an overwhelming majority: What is the next challenge for AAP now?
Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party has got overwhelming majority in Delhi assembly elections with 67 assembly seats in its account. BJP and the Congress have been completely routed in Delhi this time. BJP got restricted to single digit at 3, while the Congress failed to open its account.
Now a mere formality has left to be fulfilled before Arvind Kejriwal becomes the next CM of Delhi. Be it AAP or BJP or the Congress, during their election campaigning every one has made big promises for the Delhites.

With Kejriwal's AAP having full majority this time in the assembly they would be having a bigger responsibility on their shoulders to carry on.

Pradip K Dutta, Professor at Department of Political Science, Delhi University says, "I think the most important challenge is to provide good governance. Implementing whatever they can do within the framework of powers of the Delhi Government. Secondly they have to ensure that communal polarization does not go out of hand. Thirdly they have to keep a relationship of communication and flexibility with the Central Government. I think these are the three absolutely critical tasks, they have to consolidate it."

AAP is also aware of the fact that if political parties are failing to fulfil their electoral promises, then public is neither forgetting it nor forgiving them.

Deepak Bajpai, an AAP leader says, "We had given an election plan. And the expectations that the people of Delhi have, we have to live up to that level of expectations."

BJP, while congratulating Arvind Kejriwal, is also asking him to fulfil all the promises he has made to the people in Delhi.

Sudhanshu Mittal, a BJP leader says, "Now they have raised expectations. They have made promises. And now they will be held accountable to the promises they have made. And it's their duty to deliver those promises, some of which are snotty promises. Lets see how they will do it. Because people will certainly hold them accountable to the promises they have made now."

Non-BJP and non-Congress parties were also in the favour of AAP's victory in Delhi. Mamata Banerjee's TMC had even given an open support to Kejriwal. Non-BJP and non-Congress parties also advise Kejriwal and his party to now start working towards the welfare of the public.

Nilotpal Basu, a CPM leader says, "Delhi people have given a huge mandate to AAP and we expect that they will now have full freedom to implement policies in the favour of common man, which they have promised in the elections. But, there will be challenges, there will be constraints. But, today is too early to go into the integrity of all that."
