"My congratulations to Arvind Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi party for their victory. The people of Delhi have chosen AAP and we respect that. I wish Kejriwal and his team the very best", Rahul said.

An AICC statement said the Congress President and Vice President congratulated Kejriwal.

Congress has failed to open its account in the 70-member House, prompting Ajay Maken, who was the party's face in the Delhi polls, to resign from the post of general secretary, taking moral responsibility for the humiliating defeat at the hustings.

Congress had won 8 seats in the last Assembly polls in Delhi held in 2013 which threw a hung verdict.

Congress had lost power in those elections after being at the helm for 15-long years under the leadership of Sheila Dikshit.
