NDTV opinion poll: BJP likely to sweep Delhi

New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal and his Aam Aadmi Party or AAP seems to have lost steam in the last lap of the gigantic general election now being held. NDTV's latest opinion poll shows the BJP surging ahead in Delhi and likely to win six of the national capital's seven Lok Sabha seat. (Watch)

The AAP could have to settle for only one seat and the Congress is expected to draw a blank. In 2009, the Congress had won all seven seats.

Delhi voted on April 10.

Arvind Kejriwal, the hero of Delhi's Assembly elections held in December last year, had quit as chief minister in February after only 49 days in the post over his inability to push through his pet Jan Lokpal Bill through the Assembly. His rivals accuse him of abdicating to pursue a national agenda.

Last week Mr Kejriwal admitted that he may have mistimed the decision and that he should have explained he rationale behind his resignation to the people who had given him 28 seats in his very first election, enough for him to form government with the support of the Congress.

For the BJP, projected as Delhi's big winner, it will be a much-awaited comeback after the washout in the last Lok Sabha election and the heartbreak of falling just short of a majority in the Delhi Assembly elections.
