AAP wins trust vote in Delhi

New Delhi, Jan 2 (IANS) The minority Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government Thursday won a critical trust vote in the Delhi assembly after all eight Congress legislators extended their support to it.

With only 28 legislators in the 70-member house, the AAP needed the backing of the Congress – whose 15-year rule ended in December – to remain in office.
Eventually, the confidence vote moved by AAP leader and Education Minister Manish Sisodia was passed 37-32. The 31-strong Bharatiya Janata Party and the sole Akali Dal legislator voted against the government.
