Congress on Tuesday sought to downplay the surge of BJP in the Delhi municipal elections saying it should be seen only as civic polls, while the saffron party said corruption and price rise helped them.

"Last time BJP had won the MCD polls but Congress came to power in Assembly. Congress even went on to win all the seven Parliament seats. MCD polls should be seen only as MCD polls," Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi said.

BJP National Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu, however, said corruption and price rise were the main reasons for Congress' rout and his party's victory.

"It is a BJP win. Good governance of BJP in MCD polls, corruption by Congress and price rise are the three main issues for the rout of Congress party," Naidu said.
