Less than a week left before the onset of Delhi election, one of the most competitive Assembly election in recent days. As the campaigning for the crucial election has entered its last leg, every party is leaving no stones unturned to gain an edge over their rivals.

One thing about this election can be said convincingly that out of BJP and AAP, one will surely be in the driver seat as defanged Congress looks nowhere in the game. This is the reason, both parties(AAP, BJP) are trying their best to turn the table in their favour.

Bedi missing from party posters!

But it seems that the BJP itself is not very confident about Kiran Bedi who was projected as party's Chief Ministerial candidate withing five days of her becoming a part of the Saffron brigade. This revelation stems from the fact that her name is nowhere in many of the party's posters, released recently. Instead party once again looks in the mood to thrive on Modi's charisma to garner support of Delhi people.

This news has come close on the heels of the report that party president Amit Shah directed top Ministers to take command in Delhi polls, hinted that party can't afford to take risk by banking upon fully on Bedi's spotless record.

According to a NDTV report, many of the party posters which were found in various constituencies around Delhi featured Prime Minister Narendra Modi prominently. Apart from that, name of the party president Amit Shah Shah and the local party candidate was also seen in the poster.

When asked about this change of the strategy, miffed Jagdish Mukhi said, "What is wrong with invoking Narendra Modi's name?". He further added, "Modi is a capable leader and the people know that which is important".

It is being said that BJP which was brimming with confidence after recent electoral victories-first in Lok Sabha and then subsequently in State elections is in awe of Kejriwal led AAP. And recent poll surveys have even increased their cup of woes.

As per the latest poll survey done by the ABP News-Nielsen, BJP is losing grip among the Delhi voters in comparison to its arch rival AAP. The Survey done on January 24-25 says that the AAP support base is constantly improving while BJP's graph is going down.

Within an hour or so, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will do his first among four of the big rallies scheduled in the capital. It seems party believes that Modi is the only man who can manage the midas touch of the party. Kiran Bedi is politically naïve and can't meticulously handle whole poll affair alone.
