New Delhi: Regional parties such as the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Samajwadi Party (SP) managed to make their presence felt in the high- stakes MCD polls while Nitish Kumar-led Janata Dal (United) (JD-U) failed to open its account.

The Mayawati-led party won three wards, two in east Delhi—Gharoli and Seelampur—and one in north Delhi—Rohini C.

Samajwadi Party candidate Deepak Mehra won the Ghuman Hera ward in the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC).

Indian National Lok Dal’s (INLD) Neelam won from Dichaon Kalan in South Delhi.

The JD(U), which had entered the fray with much fanfare banking on the Purvanchali vote bank, suffered a humiliating loss as 94 of its candidates on Wednesday lost deposit.

The party had fronted the Bihar chief minister in its campaigns with Kumar holding two back-to-back rallies besides a roadshow early this month.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday steamrolled the opposition and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was reduced to a distant second, while the Congress was relegated to a poor third. The saffron party bagged an impressive number of 181 wards.

The municipal polls in Delhi were held on 23 April for 270 of 272 wards. Elections in the other two wards have been postponed due to the death of two SP candidates.
