No exit poll has given more than 30 seats to the BJP. In 2015, BJP had won three seats. While the exit polls have predicted that BJP will gain strength in Delhi as it may win more than three seats, all have predicted a landslide for the AAP. Even AAP will win Poorvanchali votes, the exit polls predicted.
But BJP leaders have always sounded confident of the party’s win in New Delhi. As soon as exit poll results were out, Manoj Tiwari said that all these predictions would fail on February 11. BJP leader Meenakshi Lekhi said exit polls are not exact polls.
