MCD Polls News
An elated AAP after winning the MCD polls on Thursday vowed to improve civic amenities in the national capital while the BJP thanked voters for "recognising" its work as it took solace in securing over a hundred seats despite exit poll predicting its rout. The BJP, which exit polls had predicted would suffer a massive defeat, put up a spirited fight to win 104 wards. In what turned out to be a closer-than-expected contest, the AAP ended the BJP's 15-year stint in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) -- trifurcated in 2012 into north, south and east corporations and unified this year -- by winning 134 seats. The majority mark in the 250-ward civic body is 126.
The Aam Aadmi Party exuded confidence that it will emerge victorious by winning more than 180 of the total 250 seats in the MCD polls Saurabh Bharadwaj told reporters, "We are going to get more than 180 seats. If voters favour us, we can also cross 230 seats" "Mayor will be from our party. I think exit polls are pointing towards the victory of the Aam Aadmi Party," Bharadwaj added
With Delhi voting for the MCD (Municipal Corporation of Delhi) polls and capital city’s three civic bodies merged into one earlier this year, it is not a difficult task for voters to notice MCD issues. The voters while stepping out of their homes to exercise their fundamental right have atleast 5 key issues on their mind. These civic problems in the national capital have made the MCD polls even more interesting as these are the primary factors that led to a political tussle between the Bharatiya Janata Party, Congress, and Aam Aadmi Party.
