Delhi: Ahead of voting for Delhi Assembly elections on February 07, Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal urged people to vote for his party.

He posted on the micro-blogging site Twitter saying that to make Delhi a dream city people should vote for AAP.

In another post he wrote that they “were receiving support and blessings from several political parties, professional bodies, associations,” adding, “We are extremely grateful. Do pray for our success.”

Meanwhile, as campaign for the one of fiercest electoral battles in the city came to an end, AAP today exuded confidence of getting a "clear majority" and said the verdict of the election could very well turn out to be a "turning point" in Indian politics.

AAP said BJP was nervous about losing the election and that it will be a sort of test of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's popularity as he has led the party's campaign.

"February 10 (verdict day) is going to have a far-reaching impact. It will be a turning point in Indian politics," senior party leader Ashutosh said in a measured tone, as per PTI.

The party, however, refused to answer when asked whether the verdict is also going to decide the party's future, if it is defeated.

"This is not the right moment to deliberate upon a question like this. Let us wait for five more days," said Ashish Khetan.

According to political analysts, an AAP victory in Delhi as projected by pre-poll surveys will not only halt BJP's juggernaut but also bolster the opposition to take on the Modi government.

AAP Spokesperson Raghav Chadha said the election verdict will be a kind of test of Modi's popularity. He added that comments made by BJP president Amit Shah that the verdict will not be a referendum on Modi government reflected that BJP has conceded defeat.

Roadshows by Kejriwal in the prestigious New Delhi constituency and Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi in Sultanpur Majra capped a day of nearly 100 rallies by leaders of various parties including BJP president Amit Shah.

The BJP, which is out of power in Delhi for the last 16 years, made a gamble by bringing in former Team Anna member Kiran Bedi into the party and made her its Chief Ministerial candidate which is said to have triggered discontent among the party leaders and rank and file.

The Congress which had ruled Delhi for 15 years till December, 2013 has been projected way behind AAP and BJP in pre-poll surveys. Some opinion polls have given AAP a clear majority while a few have predicted BJP's win.
