Addressing the valedictory function of a "Global Meet" organized by the Overseas Cell of the BJP here, Advani said that had the BJP declared Harsh Vardhan as party’s chief ministerial candidate earlier, the AAP would have not won the elections.

Though BJP emerged as the single largest party in Delhi assembly polls with 31 seats, AAP - which bagged 28 seats - formed the government with the outside support of Congress's eight legislators.

"Had Harsh Vardhan been projected earlier, he would have been the chief minister today," he said.

He said the party will be the single largest party in the Lok Sabha elections and there was enthusiasm for its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in the country.
