New Delhi: With less than 48 hours for the national capital to vote, the Aam Admi party (AAP) said that they are using spy cameras to keep an eye on their Opposition parties.

Despite being hit by a sting operation, AAP leader Kumar Vishwas on Monday said, "We are using spy cameras so that BJP and Congress cannot use alcohol to woo voters."

AAP has installed 2,000 high resolution spy cameras in and around slums of Delhi and said it was their attempt to end the age-old practice of buying votes.

Aam Aadmi Party also claimed that it has already met success with the endeavour as locals and party volunteers in Badli village Assembly constituency caught red-handed some people allegedly distributing liquor bottles at night.

"We have bought 2,000 spy cams and deployed them at various places in slums and jhuggis to put an end to the age-old practice by other parties of buying votes through distribution of cash and liquor," an AAP leader said.

The newly formed political party AAP is being considered to act as a spoiler in the upcoming Assembly Elections in the capital city both for ruling Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party.

The state is scheduled to go poll on December 04.

Earlier in the day, another AAP leader Yogendra Yadav who is also a famous election analyst, released the fourth and fifth round of its survey results, which said it estimates to secure 35.6 per cent vote share and get 38 to 50 seats in the polls.

Yadav claimed AAP has managed to equalise with Congress its vote share among the Muslims and Dalit voters with 36 per cent each.

While Kejriwal has gained five percentage points in fourth round, carried out between November 18 to 21, and the fifth round, CM Shiela Dikshit gained just one percentage point from 28 per cent to 29 whereas BJP`s chief ministerial candidate Harsh Vardhan gained three per cent.

Meanwhile, supporters from overseas (NRIs) have also reached the poll-bound state. They have campaigned for AAP and will also supposedly cast their votes in favour of the party with an aim to ensure that Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Admi Party emerges victorious in the Assembly polls on Wednesday.
