Results of the Delhi exit poll: BJP will win 48 seats, says Manoj Tiwari; AAP remains guarded | India News


NEW DELHI: Senior officials of the Bharatiya Janata Party, including the head of the BJP of Delhi, Manoj Tiwari, said Saturday that exit polls, which predicted a clean sweep for the Aam Aadmi Party, would fail when votes were counted on the 11th February An average of Exit Surveys predicted that the broom (AAP symbol) would sweep Delhi on February 11.

Some of the exit polls even predicted that AAP would repeat its crushing victory of 2015 when it accumulated 67 of 70 seats. Putting a face of reinforcement, Tiwari said that BJP would win 48 seats and form the government in the capital.

“All these exit polls will fail. Save my tweet carefully. BJP will win 48 seats and form the government in Delhi … Please don’t look for excuses to blame the EVM, “he tweeted.

The deputy of Delhi BJP, Parvesh Sahib Singh Verma, said that BJP would win 50 seats, while 16 seats would go to the AAP and four to Congress. Union Interior Minister Amit Shah held a review meeting with Delhi parliamentarians and other party officials at the end of the vote to discuss the performance of the party at the stand level and get comments.

The meeting was also attended by the national president of the party, Jagat Prakash Nadda. In the extensive election campaign, both Shah and Nadda had claimed that BJP would win more than 45 seats in Delhi. Exit polls increased the confidence of AAP, which already hoped to form the next government.

“People voted on the basis of the work done by AAP even when BJP kept calling the names of Prime Minister Arvind Kejriwal and tried to communalize the elections. BJP officials did not discuss the party’s vision and focused on community policy. I feel that the people of Delhi have given their verdict. It will be released on February 11. I trust that the results will be better than in 2015, ”said AAP deputy Rajya Sabha, Sanjay Singh.

However, AAP officials do not disappoint their guards about electronic voting machines. Kejriwal called a meeting to review the performance of AAP in the elections and ordered party officials to keep a vigil outside the strong rooms where EVMs were stored.

The AAP workers were also following the movement of EVM from the polling stations to the strong rooms.

Tweeting a video of a DTC bus carrying EVM in the middle of the road, Sanjay Singh urged the Election Commission to take note. However, the location of the bus was not clear. The head of the Delhi Congress, Subhash Chopra, also rejected exit polls and said they would turn out to be wrong.

“Congress will surprise everyone with its performance,” he said.
