According to the Election Commission officials, mock poll data was not erased at booth number 132 in Rohtas Nagar in east Delhi. At booth number 31 in Delhi Cantt's DID Lines area, the observer's report was incorrect due to problems in the voting machine.

Voting is being held between 8 am to 6 pm.

The Delhi assembly elections on Saturday saw a voter turnout of 67.14 per cent.

The BJP's Delhi unit chief Satish Upadhyay on Sunday said the party will win by a comfortable majority in the Delhi assembly election under the leadership of Kiran Bedi.

Speaking to reporters after a review meeting on the Bharatiya Janata Party's performance in Saturday's election, Upadhyay said the party will form the next government in Delhi.

"We will win by a comfortable majority under the leadership of Kiran Bedi and form the next government in Delhi," Upadhyay said.

The meeting was held against the backdrop of predictions by most exit polls that the BJP will be defeated and the Aam Aadmi Party will emerge victorious.

It was attended by the party's chief ministerial candidate Bedi, Upadhyay, Delhi poll in-charge Prabhat Jha and candidates from various constituencies.

Upadhyay, however, said he will not comment on the exit polls. "But I am confident that we will win the elections."

According to the exit polls, the AAP was likely to get between 31 and a staggering 54 seats while the BJP could bag 17 to 35 seats. The Congress, which ruled Delhi for 15 years till December 2013, would be wiped out, winning no seat or at best four seats.
