#DelhiDecides: Arvind Kejriwal will take oath as Delhi CM on Feb 14

By Agencies

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi conceded defeat on Tuesday in Delhi state elections as early results showed anti-corruption campaigner Arvind Kejriwal's party set for a landslide victory.

Modi assured Kejriwal of the national government's "complete support" following the right-wing premier's first election loss since storming to power at general polls last May.

"Spoke to @ArvindKejriwal & congratulated him on the win. Assured him Centre's complete support in the development of Delhi," Modi said in a tweet.

Early tallies showed Modi's Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leading in just three seats in the 70-seat state assembly, with former Delhi chief minister Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) ahead in 66.
