The early trends of the Delhi Municipal Corporation elections have started coming. The shocking thing is that the Bharatiya Janata Party is leading in the ward of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Kejriwal lives in Chandni Chowk Ward-74. From here, BJP’s Ravinder Kumar is leading over AAP’s Punardeep Singh by four votes after the first round of counting.
The election results of 250 Municipal Corporation wards in Delhi will be released by this afternoon. Elections were held here on Sunday. This time there was about 50.47 percent voting, which is about three percent less than in 2017. The voter turnout was 53.55% in 2017, 53.39% in 2012 and 43.24% in 2007. On Monday, five different agencies had also released exit polls regarding the MCD elections. All the exit poll figures were in favor of the Aam Aadmi Party. Means it is estimated that this time the BJP, which has been ruling the Delhi MCD for 15 years, may be thrown out.
Gradually, it will also become clear how true the claims of the exit polls are. Aam Aadmi Party, Bharatiya Janata Party and Congress had given their full strength in this election. Many veteran leaders were involved in the election campaign. Let us know how the election was held in the wards of veteran leaders of all the three parties?
