BH CORRESPONDENT, New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Admi Party (AAP) looks set to return to power with a comfortable majority if results of most exit polls are likely to hold. The BJP is likely to improve on its tally in the 2015 Delhi Assembly elections, but will be nowhere near to challenge the AAP. The Congress like last time is likely to end up with a duck.
The AAP had won 67 of 70 seats in the 2015 Assembly elections, forming the government in Delhi. The BJP had won three, and the Congress failing to win even a single seat. AAP chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had said after casting his vote on Saturday that he hopes his government will come back to power in Delhi.
The exit polls results could came as a surprise since the BJP had won all the seven parliamentary seats from Delhi in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
While the India Today-Axis exit poll predicted a near sweep for AAP, the Times Now-IPSOS poll said that the Kejriwal-led party will bag 44 seats, giving the BJP 26 seats. Congress, according to the exit poll, is unlikely to win any seat.
Even the Republic TV poll predicted between 48-61 seats for AAP, while the India TV estimated that Arvind Kejriwal will get around 44 seats.
