CAP­I­TAL GAINS

Mint Asia - - FRONT PAGE -

The Bharatiya Janata Party was trounced in Delhi state polls, the first elec­toral test since the Naren­dra Modi-led party in­tro­duced a re­li­gion-based cit­i­zen­ship law that sparked protests across In­dia. The Aam Aadmi Party, led by Arvind Ke­jri­wal, swept the state, win­ning 62 of the 70 seats, and out­smarted the BJP, whose elec­tion cam­paign was marked by at­tempts at religious po­lar­iza­tion and calls to vi­o­lence against those op­posed to the cit­i­zen­ship law. Min­ta­sia looks at how the up­start AAP out­ma­noeu­vred the BJP
