The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is poised to sweep today’s Delhi election, with a best-case scenario that even surpasses its 2015 67/70-seat tally, the India Today-Axis My India exit poll suggests.
The projected tallies of the AAP fall within the seat range of 59-68. It’s expected that its main rival, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), would win between two and 11 seats.
The Congress is not even a player at the Delhi election, based on the India Today-Axis My India exit poll numbers. The projection: seats zero.
Manoj Tiwari, the Delhi BJP leader, has discounted the numbers of exit polls; he says the BJP would win as many as 48 seats. He has asked his critics not to condemn EVMs.
In the meantime Arvind Kejriwal held a meeting at his home with senior AAP leaders to discuss security for EVM. Democratic cadres are camping outside Delhi’s strongholds.
After weeks of tough campaigning, the Delhi election ended today; voter turnout in the city at 6 pm was 54.65 per cent.
