BJP will sweep Delhi
New Delhi, April 3: Here is yet another good news for BJP - A latest survey says that the party is likely to win most of the Delhi's Lok Sabha seats.

The opinion poll conducted by research agency Cicero for the India Today Group says that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) could win from five to all Delhi seats, which were won by the Congress in the 2009 elections.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) might bag a maximum of two seats. The Congress and AAP are likely to register a vote-share similar to that in the December 2013 Assembly Elections, the poll says .

Modi wave?

The BJP vote share has seen a giant leap from 33 per cent in December to a projected 41 per cent in March 2014. Meanwhile, the Congress voteshare has crashed from 57 per cent in 2009 to 23 per cent in the forthcoming elections.

Apart from the upper castes and the trading community of Delhi, Jats and other backward communities too have decided to back BJP this time, indicates the survey.

While all the castes seems to have deserted Congress, Dalits and Punjabi Khatris support AAP.

Muslim votes

Around 68 per cent of Muslims had voted for the Congress in 2009. But this time the figure is likely to come down to 41 per cent, says the surevey.

Surprisingly, relatively fresher in the field of politics, AAP, has emerged as the second choice for Muslims, with 27 per cent saying they would vote for Arvind Kejriwal's party.

This time, Muslims in Delhi will back BJP, predicts the survey. Around 17 per cent of the Muslims will vote for BJP.

In New Delhi, East Delhi and West Delhi, where Meenakshi Lekhi, Maheish Girri and Parvesh Varma are contesting, BJP is ahead of all other parties.

Dr Harshvardhan also leads in the high-profile Chandni Chowk constituency, says the survey.
