New Delhi: With BJP sweeping the MCD polls, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has lost in areas that were considered its strongholds.

Of the 272 wards in three MCDs, the BJP won 184 councillor seats, AAP 46, Congress 30, and Independents 6 after the results were declared on Wednesday.

Senior AAP leaders and MLAs Satyendra Jain and Somnath Bharti, who have three wards each in their constituencies, failed to impress on the voters leading to loss of AAP candidates.
