SHIMLA, Feb. 12 -- Taking a potshot at the Congress, who failed to open an account in Delhi, chief minister Jai Ram Thakur said the party will meet a similar fate in the state in Himachal Assembly elections in 2022.

Though the Aam Aadmi (AAP) got a sweeping mandate in the elections, chief minister Jai Ram Thakur said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has improved its vote share in the national capital.

"BJP has polled more than 40% votes which is a positive sign," he said at an event in Shimla.

Chief minister Jai Ram Thakur and his cabinet colleagues had extensively campaigned for the BJP candidates in Delhi.

Himachal Pradesh BJP chief Rajeev Bindal congratulated the AAP and it chief Arvind Kejriwal for registering a massive victory.
