New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party, led by Arvind Kejriwal, is set retain power in Delhi as the official Election Commission trends suggest that the party is leading on 62 seats while the BJP is ahead on eight seats. The Congress continued with its dismal performance in the national capital and once again drew a blank.
The three-way high-voltage contest between the Aam Aadmi Party, the BJP and the Congress has reached its summit with the votes of the February 8 polls being counted. While the exit polls have predicted a clear majority for Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP, the BJP is confident of winning more than 45 seats in 70-membered assembly and form the government.
In the 2015 assembly polls in the national capital, the AAP had registered a thumping victory, bagging 67 of the 70 seats and the BJP winning the remaining three seats. The Congress had failed to open its account.
