AAP Likely to Return to Power in Delhi, Opine Guwahatians
Who do you think has a better chance of winning the upcoming Delhi Assembly elections?
Total votes: 5.5K
The stage was set for the Delhi assembly elections which took place on Saturday, February 8 with the elections being touted as a direct fight between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Aam Admi Party (AAP).
The past few days have seen relentless campaigning from both the parties as well as the Congress in Delhi where the political parties have gone all out to woo voters. The citizens of Delhi are set to elect the representatives in the 70-member Delhi assembly on February 8 while the counting of votes will take place on February 11.
During the campaigning phase, the AAP leaders focussed primarily on the issues of development including education, health and others. However, the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) also found a place in the AAP’s campaigning.
On the other hand, the main issue for the BJP during campaigning was the ongoing protests at Shaheen Bagh in Delhi.
With the results set to be announced on February 11, speculations are rife as to who will emerge victorious in the polls.
G Plus conducted a poll on its social media channels and asked its readers their opinion on who they think has a better chance of winning the Delhi assembly elections. A total of 5,500 participants took part in the poll.
Out of this, a clear majority (72 per cent) of the respondents felt that the AAP will return to power in Delhi whereas 28 per cent participants said that the BJP will form the government in Delhi this time.
Those who felt that the AAP will emerge victorious reasoned that the party, unlike BJP, has kept development as their main agenda.
A Guwahati resident Shoriful Islam said, “AAP is the only non-ideological party. It has no caste-based vote. No country divided in caste and religion can progress. For the sake of India, if we really claim ourselves Indian should vote for the party whose priority is Education, Health and Jobs not Hindu-Muslim, Temple-Mosque etc.”
Further, Zephyr Hussain mentioned, “BJP will only win if they indulge themselves in fraudulent manipulation of votes. Otherwise, AAP is on the rise.”
Another respondent mentioned, “Only EVM can save BJP in Delhi.”
On the other hand, many participants also said that BJP will come to power this year in Delhi.
A Guwahatian, Krishnan RV said, “When BJP sweeps the elections, the readymade excuse of EVMs tampered will come through. There is this standard operating protocol of all leftists, where they would never accept defeat like 5 year olds.”
