New Delhi, Jan 20: As the battle lines for Delhi polls are drawn between BJP, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Congress, opinion polls are still predicting a cake walk victory for the BJP in the national capital.
As per the survey, the BJP will bag 37 seats while the Arvind Kejriwal's AAP will emerge second with 29 seats. The Congress may finish third with 4 seats, the survey suggests.
For getting a clear majority a party needs 35+ seats in Delhi and the BJP seems to be getting two more seats.
45% of the voters think that the BJP has a good chance of forming a government after the Delhi Assembly Election 2015. 34.2% respondents think that the AAP has a good chance. Only 13.7% voters are of the view that the Congress might bounce back and form the government.
BJP was ranked the highest when asked which party voters thought could give good governance to Delhi. 45.1% of the respondents feel that the saffron party is synonymous to good governance. The BJP was followed by AAP (34.6%) and the Congress was preferred by 14.7%.
The survey also proved that women's safety and development are going to be the biggest issue in the run up to Feb 7 polls.
This survey was conducted after Kiran Bedi, who now happens to be the BJP's CM candidate, Shazia Ilmi joined the BJP. Experts, however, feel that the statistics in Delhi will change drastically after BJP played a masterstroke by declaring Kiran Bedi as party's CM candidate.
Hence, it will be interesting to see in which side the people's mood will swing now. Experts are of the view that declaring a CM face will only help the BJP in the crucial Delhi polls.
