New Delhi, Dec 19: After registering a thumping victory in the recently concluded assembly polls in states of Maharashtra and Haryana, BJP seems to be repeating similar performance in the upcoming state polls in Delhi.
Days after a poll survery conducted by ABP News-Nielsen which predicted BJP getting majority in 70 seat-Delhi Assembly, a similar opinion poll survey conducted by India Today-CICERO has once again predicted that the people of Delhi will go with the BJPs posterboy Narendra Modi.
A survey has claimed that BJP will get thumping victory in Delhi Assembly, while its rivals AAP and Congress will be at 2nd and 3rd positions, respectively. The poll survey predicts that Modi-led party will get 34-40 seats, while AAP will get 26-31 seats, if the polls are done today.
However, BJP's difference of votes remains marginally higher - only 3 per cent - from its closest rival AAP. However, AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal has still emerged as the people's first choice for CM candidate due to unavailability of any CM candidates from the BJP or Congress.
The survey which comes days after the saffron party conducted its own to access the ground situation has further validated the point that the BJP will emerge as largest party in the 70-seats Assembly.
In the 2013 assembly polls, BJP had won 32 seats, followed by AAP with 28 seats. In the last Lok Sabha election, BJP made a clean sweep winning all seven Parliamentary seats in the national capital.
The survey has brought bad news for AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal who is hoping to become Delhi Chief Minister again. There has been a sharp decline of support base of AAP, after its 49-day-long joke of a Government where Arvind Kejriwal ran away from his Chief Ministerial responsibility.
A lot is at stake for the party which is trying every bit to retain its foothold in Delhi especially after its dismal showing in the April-May general elections.
