New Delhi, Feb 10: With the AAP inching closer to a landslide victory in the Delhi Assembly polls, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee today termed it as a "turning point" in India's current political landscape and a big defeat for those indulging in vendetta politics.
"This is a victory for the people and a big defeat for the arrogant and those who are doing political vendetta & spreading hate among people," the West Bengal Chief Minister tweeted.
In another tweet, she said, "Delhi election is turning point of present political situation. Shows political vendetta has no place in a democracy. Country needed this change."
