Dikshit submitted her resignation to Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung Sunday as vote count showed that the Congress may not win even a dozen seats in the 70-member assembly.

Asked whether the Congress could not sense the public mood about AAP, the 75-year-old Dikshit shot back: "Weren't we foolish ('bewqoof')" in possibly misjudging them.

“I accept the election results with due respect,” Dikshit said as trends showed that she was heading for a humiliating defeat in the New Delhi constituency.
