AAP ready to make a splash in LS polls
New Delhi, Jan 9: The Lok Sabha elections scheduled in April-May is not only going to be a testing ground for Congress' likely PM candidate Rahul Gandhi but also for BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and latest entrant in the political scenario, AAP led by Arvind Kejriwal.

And who is looking forward to the elections; the aam junta. According to a survery carried out by IPSOS for the Times of India [read here ]across 8 cities- Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune and Ahmedabad, 58 per cent of the people picked up Narendra Modi as their PM choice, whereas 25 per cent chose Arvind Kejriwal and 14 per cent thought that Rahul Gandhi would make the best PM.

AAP turned out to be a favourable choice for many as 44 per cent of the voters said that they would vote for an AAP candidate if there was one in their constituency.

However what was surprising was that in citites like Chennai, Mumbai and Modi's own turf, people preferred Kejriwal to Modi as the best PM choice.

Survey reveals that BJP still has an edge over AAP, Cong

AAP's performance in the recent Delhi assembly elections has played a key role and is likely to favour the party in the upcoming general elections. According to the survery, 61 per cent of the respondents thought that AAP would be good for economic growth whereas 27 per cent said that the party would be bad for economic growth.

The survery also revealed that 81 per cent of the respondents wanted the AAP to go national.

Following the survery, the Congress party needs to revamp its whole strategy if it wants to be back in the race. With Narendra Modi smiling at the finishing line, Rahul Gandhi will have to pull his socks up as Arvind Kejriwal is all set to give him a stiff competition.
