Agra`s betting bazaar places AAP at third place
Agra: After months of high voltage election campaign, peace has descended here and the talk in the betting bazaar hints at the Aam Aadmi Party emerging a close third, denting the poll prospects of strong contenders.
Candidates have now returned to their homes with family members, while poll analysts are busy with tabulating forecasts on poll results.
But the Agra satta bazaar has been abuzz with activity since Thursday evening.
Aam Aadmi Party candidate Ravindra Singh told a news agency: "The sattebazis have placed our party in the third position, after the BJP and the Congress."
He said the party has fielded over 400 candidates, many of whom are capable of cutting down a few thousand votes of their rivals.
"The Aam Aadmi cannot win a single seat by itself, but yes surely its candidates in the final analysis would be accused of spoiling the party of many strong candidates," said poll pundit Paras Nath Choudhary.
The polling percentage in the Braj Prant region of Mathura, Etah, Mainpuri, Agra, Firozabad, Hathras and Fatehpur Sikri registered an improvement of at least 10 percent over the 2009 Lok Sabha polls.
