New Delhi: Asserting that it highlighted its agenda extremely well before the people of the national capital, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday expressed hope that the verdict of the Delhi Assembly polls would be in its favour taking into consideration the credibility enjoyed by its leadership.
BJP spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao said that his party fought the assembly elections with all seriousness.
"We have contested the polls very well. We have highlighted our agenda for governance in Delhi. So, we are hoping that the results that will be coming out shortly will be in our party's favour," said Narasimha Rao.
"The manner in which we contested these polls, the effort that we have made and the kind of credibility our party and leadership enjoys I think it gives us the confidence that we would do well in Delhi Assembly elections," he added.
Five out of seven exit polls have predicted that the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP may return to power once again in the national capital, with the second place for the BJP. The Congress, which ruled Delhi for 15 years, has been placed at a distant third.
Counting of votes for the high-profile Delhi Assembly polls in which the BJP and AAP are locked in a direct fight will begin at 8 am.
The Election Commission has made elaborate arrangements for the counting of votes. Counting will take place at 14 centres in nine districts of the national capital.
A voter turnout of 67.08 percent was recorded in the polling for the 70-member Delhi Assembly. A total of 673 candidates are in the fray this time.
