New Delhi: The preliminary counting of votes polled in the high-stakes Delhi Assembly elections showcase how exit polls prediction is slowly turning into exact poll as AAP continues to lead.
Celebrations have begun at the Aam Aadmi Party office in Delhi after initial trends suggested the Arvind Kejriwal-led party is ahead by a huge margin in the national capital.
The curiosity among people to know the outcome of the elections to the 70-member Delhi Assembly has heightened post-exit polls, which has forecast a big win for the ruling Aam Aadmi Party.
As per the polls, the AAP will be in a comfortable position to form the next government.
In the 2015 Delhi Assembly poll, the AAP had routed rival parties bagging 67 seats and the BJP was reduced to mere three seats, while the Congress had drawn a blank.
Though BJP leaders maintained that the exit poll results that predicted its defeat in the Delhi polls will “fail”, their confidence seemed to break with the on-going vote counting.
While BJP leaders targeted the AAP, and the Congress, accusing them of “misleading people” holding anti-CAA protests in Delhi, AAP, on the other hand, focused on topics of basic amenities including, electricity supply, water supply, quality education, better health facilities, and safe transportation.
