    If elections are held on the basis of performance BJP should come third. It is now one of the worst corporation in terms of corruption & work done. I feel it is a close contest between AAP / BJP and Congress. Out of 274 seats I feel BJP may get 110 , Congress 80 & AAP about 90.. Overall no party can get majority. But due to a pseudowave BJP may get some additional votes.

            Boss, how do you get water? From Tanker MAFIA? No, right? Is Electricity supply better than all previous years combined? Yes, right? Ok Lets say you vote for BJP. What happens. Three more years of corruption and Kachra littered all over streets?? Until probably when a new government comes to Delhi. Ok. Lets say Modi Ji wanted to do good like Yogi Ji in UP. Why was he silent for 2 years. Could he not have installed a good Mayor, good LG.. I do not wish to change your mind brother. Please do vote for BJP since you are paid for it. Earn big and throw humanity and comp ion out of the window for your brothers in Delhi. Jai Hind

            Now that the election commission is planning to use EVMs with paper auditing in as many places as possible depending on the immediate availability of such EVMs, wonder, what excuse the AAP will make to claim "victimhood"

                How many seats does one need to win and make a party? Majority, right? What does runner up do? Sit in Opposition? Pls ask BJP candidate to sit in opposition and do something constructive. Lets say ask Tiwari ji to float issues that actually concern people. Thats what a good opposition should do. In view of the landslide victory of AAP, a good opposition is also necessary. people understood that and gave BJP a chance. Lets not harp about embly elections. Lets focus on MCD which is a different game altogether. Hope you understand brother.
