New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will not enter into an alliance with any political party if a hung assembly emerges from the Delhi elections, a party leader said Wednesday.

"AAP represents the emotions of Delhi`s voters who will pass a no-confidence vote against both the Congress and BJP. Any kind of alliance with political parties would be a betrayal of their trust," party leader Yogendra Yadav said.

Yadav was speaking on the sidelines of the launch of a survey conducted by an independent agency, which found that over 40 percent of Delhi`s voters want AAP to come to power and party chief Arvind Kejriwal to be their next chief minister.

According to the ABP News-Nielsen Mood of the Nation survey Thursday, the BJP is likely to win 32 of the 70 assembly seats, while the ruling Congress will win 27 seats.

"Delhi will witness a hung assembly, with the BJP emerging as the single largest party and the newly-floated AAP not making a major breakthrough in the polls," the survey said.

Elections to the Delhi assembly are scheduled in November.
