The India Today exit poll predicted that the BJP will get over 200 wards out of 272, followed by Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party, which is expected to get over 25 wards.
Even a Sunday off failed to get Delhiites to the polling stations to vote for the civic elections for the three municipal corporations.
“Glitches in the electronic voting machines (EVMs) were reported from nine polling stations”.
Kejriwal said more than win or loss, he was more bothered about the “unabated tampering of EVMs” across the country and “betrayal”. “He will blame EVM machine tampering for his failure in every elections”, Singh told ANI. Only stories are planted in the media.
As per the records of the Delhi poll commission, the polling percentage in 2012 was 53.43 per cent, which was the highest in 15 years. Then they said they could be checked after the polls. “We will challenge the order in court”, said Mr. Kejriwal. People talk like this when they know that they are going to face failure. Be it Arunachal, Manipur, Goa… MLAs and ministers of the Sheila Dikshit government felt sidelined when tickets were announced.
“The tragedy is people who do now what Bhajan Lal once did are being painted as “master strategists” while the parties which lose MLAs are blamed for the situation”.
“I am not saying we will win all the three corporations. Others are bending on their knees”. People’s mandate is not with Kejriwal that is why he is making this excuse.
“In South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) areas 22 lakh votes were polled, while in East Delhi, the figure stood at 14.8 lakh”, said a senior official of the Commission.
“House tax will go”.
A 30-year-old driver died after he fell into a seven-feet deep pit, dug by the BSES for installing streetlight cables in south Delhi’s Neb Sarai area. All this with the intention of becoming the sole challenger to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2019. It is true that as the convenor of AAP, Kejriwal had to travel to expand his party, but he never waited for his Delhi government to first stabilise.
“I have been complaining for a long time about the potholes on a road right outside of my house, but the issue is yet to be resolved”, he said.
