In 2015, the Delhi elections were held on February 7, and the results were announced on February 10. The Aam Aadmi Party won 67 of the 70 seats in the assembly in the 2015 Delhi elections. The remaining three went to the BJP and Congress was unable to open its account.

Now again battle for Delhi votes has started among different political parties. The key contest in Delhi is between the ruling Aam Aadmi Party, BJP and Congress. The political parties may spend 150cr to 170 cr in the upcoming Delhi elections. According to IANS-CVoter Delhi poll tracker APP party will win 59 seats in upcoming Delhi election. The AAP supremo said his government was successful in doing a lot of work for the city in 2019 which was a very important year in many ways.

The AAP government’s schemes for a free ride for women in DTC buses and free electricity up to 200 units for the city dwellers will continue for the next five years if the party returns to power, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Sunday. The opposition is saying that all these schemes will stop after the election.

However, due to the lack of a credible leader and weak organisation of Congress in Delhi when it comes to choosing the state government. The BJP was not able to maintain its performance in the state Assembly elections. In the recent Assembly elections in Haryana and Jharkhand, the BJP lost around 20 per cent of votes from the 2019 Lok Sabha election, the BJP has not been able to get the majority in a single state. This shows the BJP’s weakness to perform in the state Assembly. So we could not tell who will be next CM of Delhi. Only time will tell after this great battle in Delhi election.
