Exit polls predict massive BJP win in Delhi civic body elections
The BJP will retain its decade-long hold over the municipal bodies in the national capital with much better electoral performance, according to the exit polls aired by news channels after the polling on
Sunday.

The results for the corporations of south, east and north Delhi will be announced on Wednesday.
The ABP News-C Voter exit poll suggests a BJP wave in the corporation elections. The Hindi news channel claimed that not only will the BJP be able to beat anti-incumbency, but there are chances that the outcome will reflect the party’s sweeping mandate in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

Of the 272 seats in the three corporation bodies, the BJP is expected to win 218 seats, followed by the AAP with 24 seats and the Congress 22. The BJP, says the exit poll, is expected to snatch seats from the BSP too, which may win eight wards.

Last elections, the BJP had got 138 seats, Congress 77 and BSP 57. AAP did not exist in 2012. In South Delhi Municipal Corporation, ABP News foresees BJP getting 80 out of 104. AAP and Congress would barely get 9 each, while others 3.

The exit polls, similarly, claimed the BJP will win 88 out of 104 wards of North Delhi Municipal Corporation. While AAP will have to be content with 6 and Congress 3.

For East Delhi Municipal Corporation’s 64 seats, the exit poll predicts that BJP will get 47, AAP 9 and Congress 6.

The Axis-India Today’s exit polls gave BJP 202 seats, AAP 23 to 35, Congress 19 to 31 and others 2 to 8 seats. In North, the BJP is predicted to win 78 to 84 seats, while the Congress and AAP may win 8 to 12 wards each. In South, BJP will get 79-85 seats, AAP 9-13 and Congress 7-11 seats. And in East, BJP is expected to corner 45-51 seats, AAP 6-10 and Congress 4-8 seats.
