New Delhi, Nov 28 (TruthDive): Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will not support Congress or BJP in case the Delhi Assembly faces a hung house, Kejriwal told in a live phone chat with a TV channel.
He said he was confident that the Aam Aadmi Party would get the numbers to form a ministry of its own. In case the Aam Aadmi Party loses the election, it would not quit the political scene, since the goal is to wipe out corruption. The ET poll threw a shocker that in the New Delhi constituency, Kejriwal will win and BJP will be second and Dikshit pushed to the third.
A survey done with 6000 odd respondents across Delhi by Nielsen-ABP-Dainik Bhaskar, showed BJP will emerge the single-largest party in Delhi assembly elections but will not have the numbers to form the ministry. BJP is likely to get around 32 seats out of the 70-member house with a 33% vote share.
The Congress with 26% share is expected to get 25 seats and Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) with a 23% vote share is likely to get 10 seats, it said. The survey said around 20 seats results could tilt either way as the margins are wafer thin and with only 2% difference.
The poll survey says BJP’s Harsh Vardhan is the first choice for the chief ministerial candidate, with Aam Aadmi founder following closely.
Voters are upset about price rise and this is the key factor working against the Congress, even though the people did recognize the good work done in the past 15 years by Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit.
As many as 81% percent of the population were angry with soaring vegetable prices and may prove to be the deciding factor in the elections. The Aam Aadmi Party is capable of curbing corruption, the BJP can control inflation and the Congress can maintain law and order, said the respondents in the survey.
Delhi police force involved in protecting VIPs is reason for crime increase, says 47%, while 40% feel criminals have lost fear of the police and the rest felt it was poor policing.
