New Delhi: Soon after voting in Delhi ended, a majority of exit polls predicted a landslide victory for the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). Five exit polls have predicted a comfortable victory for Aam Aadmi Party, showing it to be winning anything between 47 seats to 68 seats in the assembly of 70 members.
Almost all exit polls predicted little change in the fortunes of the Congress, which had ruled the city between 1998 and 2013 but drew a blank in the 2015 polls.
The complete picture, however, will only be clear on February 11 when the results will be announced. Meanwhile, the exit polls have given a lot of fodder to citizens who are busy making memes and jokes on social media, while waiting anxiously for the results.
While many made fun of Congress’ fortunes, others joked about BJP’s fate. Here are some of the best tweets:
However, BJP leaders have rubbished the predictions of the exit poll. While Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari said that all predictions will fail on February 11, Meenakshi Lekhi said that exit polls are not exact polls.
Counting of votes and result declaration will take place on February 11.
In the 2015 assembly polls, the AAP won 54.3 per cent of the vote, the BJP won 32 per cent and the Congress managed just 9.6 per cent.
