Kejriwal claims AAP ahead of Congress, BJP in Delhi polls.

New Delhi, Oct.18 ( ANI ): m dmi Party (P) leader Arvind Kejriwal on Friday claimed that his party would be ahead of the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the upcoming elections.

P conducted its third survey report to ascertain who amongst the ruling Congress, BJP and P, would win and gain in the polls scheduled on December 4.

"m dmi Party (P) is ahead with 33 seats, while in other 21 seats, the party is tailing from one or two percents. The reason behind it could be some error margin, as it would be neck-to-neck fight," Kejriwal told media here today.

He said these figures are based on an extensive internal survey carried out by the party's cadres and volunteers.

"The Congress party has potential voters of 29 percent, while exhausting their limit, the party has already got 28 percent of vote share; so, there is less possibility for them to grow. On the other hand, BJP has 24 percent potential voters and they have already got these votes, so, BJP also does not have scope for growth. At the end, if we analyze, it seems that by December 4, our party might land up with 45 to 50 seats," he added.

He further said that the first two surveys conducted by P, in February and August, had a sample size of over 3,000, while the recent survey had a sample size of over 35,000 in all 70 constituencies in the region.

Elections in Delhi would be held on December 4, and the counting would take place on December 8. ( ANI )
