Karnataka has always been a cyclical state since the 1989 elections. In 1985, the then Siddaramaiah's boss Ramakrishna Hegde had won a second consecutive term. After that no political party has ever been able to retain the state for two consecutive terms.
Rahul told the opposition parties the basic truth: It is near impossible for a non-Congress, non-BJP alliance of regional parties to form a government in Delhi. At least, in 2019.
Promising a new beginning in Indian politics, Arvind Kejriwal said India will get back its "golden age" in 10 years.
"It is shocking that a senior leader such as Gadkari is speaking like this," said Kejriwal reacting to the allegations.
Bhardwaj fought the elections in the BJP-stronghold and defeated Ajay Kumar Malhotra by more than 13,000 votes in the decisive South Delhi constituency.
The most momentous day in the life of Kejriwal began like any other day with him getting up at 5 AM.
Social activist Anna Hazare congratulated Kejriwal and said he's confident that Kejriwal will do good work.
Kejriwal won by a convincing margin against Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit in her own bastion.
Even before Kejriwal assumes office, the task has been cut out for him and the gap will be measured by promise and performance.
"After taking oath as Delhi's CM, I will call cabinet meeting at 2 PM on Saturday," said the chief minister designate.
Experts argue that 700 litre water is a gross overestimation of demand, which is not more than 350 litre per day per household.
Kejriwal had said earlier in the day that he would personally invite his "guru" Hazare for the ceremony.
He also said that his party has chalked out a plan as to where the money for providing 700 litre water per house will come from.
There are no constitutional hurdles. They have been created by the ones in power. We will overcome them and ensure that the Bill is passed.
AAP leaders including Manish Sisodia, Somnath Bharti, Rakhi Birla and Saurabh Bhardwaj will also be sworn in as Delhi ministers.
"It is up to the L-G to decide the date of swearing-in after holding consultation with Chief Minister designate," the Home Ministry said.
"Congress will lend outside support to AAP as promised earlier," Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Singh Lovely told CNN-IBN.
AAP MLA Vinod Kumar Binny, who had threatened to revolt against the party, has now come out officially denying it all.
All this comes just a day before AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal is sworn in as Delhi's Chief Minister.
