New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party could win 40-45 seats in the upcoming Delhi assembly election, party chief Arvind Kejriwal on Wedcnesday said.
The former Delhi Chief Minister, who resigned after running a 49-day government, had been saying in his rallies that more the BJP extends the term of President's rule in the National Capital, more the seats the party will bag.
"We will win 40-45 seats," Kejriwal said in a response to a question by reporters on whether the party had done an internal survey and how many seats it was expected to win.
"The BJP has done exactly the opposite to what it promised. It hiked the electricity tariff, there has been an increase in inflation," he said.
Incidentally, an opinion poll conducted recently by a news channel said that the saffron party will sweep Delhi assembly polls and AAP will come a distant second. However, the former Delhi Chief Minister had a slight edge over Union Minister and Chandni Chowk MP Harsh Vardhan.
In the assembly polls held in December last year, AAP had won 28 seats in its debut performance, but the BJP was the largest party with 32 seats including a lone Shiromani Akali Dal nominee.
