Mamata Banerjee calls Arvind Kejriwal to congratulates him

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee called her Delhi counterpart, Arvind Kejriwal, to congratulate him as vote tallies showed his Aam Aadmi Party heading for a historic victory in the capital territory on Tuesday.

She told reporters that the Modi government's citizenship policies would be rejected. Only development will work, she said.

If the current Delhi election result trends hold, the AAP will see a significant reduction in seat share but still enjoy a commanding majority of over 50 seats in a 70-member House. The BJP, on the other hand, looks set to multiply its seat share but still in a distant second position.
