New Delhi, Nov 28 (UNI) A day before the Delhi Assembly elections, the Delhi unit of the Samajwadi Party today exuded the hope that it would bag seats in the double digits in the polls tomorrow and might play the role of a kingmaker in the government formation, a claim unlikely to find favour among the city electorate.

''During the campaign, more than 100 public meetings and rallies, including 50 by national level leaders, were staged all across the capital. Party leaders Mulayam Singh Yadav, Amar Singh, Jaya Bachchan, Jayaprada, Abu Asim Azmi and Kamaal Akhtar all participated in the public meetings and raised several vital issues related to the capital,'' Samajwadi Party Delhi unit president Shyam Gambhir told a media briefing here.

He said the demands of full statehood for Delhi, regularisation of unauthorised colonies and amendments in the master plan were laid focus on in a big way during the electioneering.

He hoped that the Mumbai terror attack would not have any effect on the polling in Delhi as the people of the national capital were brave enough and would instead turn up in large numbers to exercise their franchise.

''The people of Delhi have seen enough of terror and they will not be affected in any way by the mindless bloodbath unleased by the fidayeen in the financial capital of the country,'' he added.
