New Delhi: If the exit polls are to be believed, then BJP is either going to retain all the seven Parliamentary seats or lose one of them in the national capital. The exit polls indicate that one of the seven seats could go in favour of the Congress and AAP will even not be able to open its account.

The exit polls have, however, made it clear that if the Congress and the AAP had forged a pre-poll alliance, the election results could have been the other way around and worked in their favour.

 

According to Times Now-VMR exit poll, the BJP is going to retain six of the seven Parliamentary seats in Delhi.

According to the Times Now-VMR exit poll, the BJP is to get 42.8 per cent vote share while Congress will get 24.2 per cent and AAP 25.6 per cent votes. If the votes polled by the AAP and the Congress are put together, it is more than that of the BJP, thus indicating that had the two parties joined hands before the elections, the results could have easily worked in their favour.

The exit polls by News 24 / Today’s Chanakya and India TV / CNX shows that the BJP was going to retain all the seven Lok Sabha seats. In 2009, the seven seats were won by the Congress.

 

But the exit poll by India Today / Axis shows that the BJP could either win all the seven seats or may lose one to the Congress. The question arises which one seat could go in favour of the Congress. If poll pundits are to be believed, the Congress could either win Chandni Chowk, North East Delhi or New Delhi seat.

In Chandni Chowk seat, Union minister and sitting BJP MP Dr Harsh Vardhan is contesting against former MP and Congress candidate and former MP J.P. Aggarwal. In North East Delhi, city Congress president and three-time chief minister Sheila Dikshit had been pitted against Delhi BJP unit head and sitting MP Manoj Tiwari.
