On Tuesday, the AAP announced the names all its candidates for the 70-member Delhi assembly polls.
As per the announcement of the EC, Delhi Assembly Election 2020 will be held on February 8 and the counting of votes will take place on February 11.
In the last Assembly polls, the BJP had won only three assembly seats, while the AAP had won in 67, making the government for five years.
The Delhi Assembly Election 2020 will witness a triangular contest with the Congress being the third major player.
While AAP’s Kejriwal is relying on populist schemes, like free electricity and water besides free ride for women in the government-run buses, the BJP, on the other hand, is eying to oust him from power on the Modi government’s decision to grant ownership rights to people living in unauthorised colonies and planks like Citizenship (Amendment) Act.
