The counting of votes for 70 seats of the Delhi Assembly has begun amid tight security. Early trends showed that BJP's Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga and Kapil Mishra were leading in Hari Nagar and Model Town seats.
Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga, who is also BJP state spokesperson, faces Aam Aadmi Party's Rajkumari Dhillon and Congress's Surender Sethi in Hari Nagar. While Kapil Mishra, is facing Aam Aadmi Party's Akhilesh Pati Tripathi and Congress's Akanksha Ola.
Early trends showed the Aam Aadmi Party ahead of its rival BJP as counting of votes began in all the assembly constituencies in Delhi. The postal ballots that were the first to be counted showed the AAP is four times ahead of the BJP. While the Congress trailing with only 3 seats.
As per the trends coming in at 8.30 a.m., the AAP was leading at 41 out of 60 seats, while BJP in 18 seats and Congress on 1 seat. The results are as per expectation of the Exit polls which have predicted clear majority for the incumbent government led by Arvind Kejriwal.
The AAP has contested all the seats in Delhi, while the BJP contested in alliance with the JD-U; and the Congress was in alliance with the RJD. All exit polls have suggested that the ruling AAP will be back in power in Delhi. While some exit polls suggest that the BJP is likely to gain ground, it will not be enough. The BJP has been waiting to return to power for almost two decades.
