After exit polls predicted an AAP victory in Delhi, AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday thanked the people of the city for voting for his party in large numbers.
“My gratitude 2 Delhiites for their support,” he tweeted. “(You are) so amazing. (You) rejected politics of caste and religion. Hope final results (are) as per exit polls.”
He also congratulated all “selfless volunteers of the AAP who worked round the clock for their country. AAP is bcoz of u.”
The AAP is likely to form a government in Delhi, half-a-dozen exit polls said Saturday after assembly elections, giving the BJP the second spot. The Congress is expected to be wiped out.
The Aam Aadmi Party of former chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, who ran an aggressive campaign, is expected to win between 31 and a whopping 53 seats in the 70-member assembly, the surveys said.
The Bharatiya Janata Party could bag 17-35 seats. The Congress, which had ruled Delhi for 15 years until December 2013, would face a rout, either winning no seat or at best four seats.
Today’s Chanakya gave 48 seats to the AAP, which ruled Delhi for 49 days after stunningly winning 28 seats in its maiden election 14 months ago, and 22 to the BJP.
The Congress, it said, would be crushed in the AAP-BJP battle.Any party will need at least 36 seats to form the government in Delhi.
