The party's campaign committee chairman Kirti Azad's wife, Poonam Azad, lost badly and stood fourth, polling only 2,604 (2.23).
Reacting on party's defeat, congress leader and Punjab cabinet minister Sadhu Singh Dharamsot said his party was not defeated in the Delhi election as its tally remained at zero like in 2015, and so it was the BJP's loss.
"We were zero earlier, and this time too we are zero. So it's not our defeat. It's a defeat for the BJP," he told mediapersons here, referring to the election trends which gave the Congress no seat in the Delhi assembly election.
