Prime Minister Narendra Modi will face a test of his popularity next month as the national capital Delhi goes to the elections amid concerns over corruption and rising prices.

New Delhi has been under president’s rule for almost a year after the anti-corruption Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) made a stunning electoral debut to take power, only to give it up 49 days later.

The party’s tenure was dominated by public sit-ins, conflicts with electricity and water agencies and a power struggle with the federal government.

The election in New Delhi is likely to be three-way contest between Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Aam Aadmi Party and the Congress party.

The outcome of the Feb. 7 election will be announced three days later, the Election Commission of India said.
