New Delhi: The BJP increased its vote share in the Delhi Assembly polls but lost out to the AAP as the contest became "bipolar", party sources said after its top leaders conducted initial rounds of post-mortem of the party's drubbing.
The BJP's vote share, along with that of its allies, increased to nearly 40 per cent but it lost out to the AAP, whose vote share was at 53.5 per cent, almost same as last assembly polls.
The Congress could garner only 4.26 per cent vote compared to more than 9 per cent votes it had bagged in the 2015 election.
In the meeting it was felt that in future, the party should prepare itself for bipolar contest in the national capital.
A report will be prepared on the basis of these meetings by the BJP's Delhi unit which will be submitted to the central leadership.
