BH CORRESPONDENT, New Delhi: As the five exit polls predict a clear win for Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Saturday, giving BJP the second berth and Congress an almost a blank slate, Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Sunday said his party never expected to do well in the Delhi assembly elections. He, however, praised AAP chief Kejriwal and said if he wins the election it will be the victory of the delevelopmental agendas.
“In this assembly election, the BJP raised all sort of communal agendas. But Arvind Kejriwal raised developmental agendas. If Kejriwal wins, then it will be the victory of the developmental agendas,” said the senior Congress leader. Chowdhury also told the media that he has evaluated the issues his party and the others have fought on in this election.
The exit polls on Saturday predicted AAP as a clear winner with anything between 47 seats to 68 seats in the assembly of 70 members. BJP, however, is predicted to improve its tally and is expected to bag anything between 2-11 seats. BJP had won just three seats in 2015 assembly elections.
Meanwhile, according to sources, Delhi chief minister and AAP leader Kejriwal along with other AAP leaders like deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, Sanjay Singh, Raghav Chadha and Gopal Rai had met election strategist Prashant Kishore to discuss the security of the EVMs ahead of the counting day on February 11. Senior Congress leader PC Chacko said every decision on the possibility of Congress-AAP alliance depends on the outcome of elections result.
