Exit polls have predicted that AAP will sweep the municipal polls, with BJP coming in a distant second. The Congress, the exit polls said, will get only a handful of seats.

Based on the predictions, Chief Minister and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal said: “People of Delhi have again put their trust in Aam Aadmi Party, we are hopeful that very good results will come in MCD elections. It was being said that Gujarat is BJP’s bastion, for the first time a party is getting 15 to 20 percent vote share, it is a big deal… we will wait for the final results to come in tomorrow before thanking the people.”

BJP Delhi president Adesh Gupta, meanwhile, also expressed confidence that the party would reach the halfway mark. “We had a good campaign and the feedback on the polling day gives us clear reasons to be sure of a good performance. BJP will comfortably cross the halfway mark,” he said.
