The broom no longer cleans - Priyadarshi Dutta, Pioneer
The debacle of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the recent municipal elections in Delhi, which it badly needed to win, confirms a pattern in its downslide. Coming in the aftermath of its candidate Harjeet Singh losing his deposit in the Rajouri Garden by-poll, its failure to win Punjab and discomfiture in Goa, the AAP’s future prospects appear in jeopardy.
