By on October 18, 2013


The Aam Aadmi Party on Friday claimed that the party is ahead in 33 of 70 assembly seats of the poll-bound national capital and it will win between 45 and 50 seats in Delhi, party chief Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday, citing a party survey.

The survey was conducted between September 5 and October with a sample size of 34,425 in all the 70 constituencies. The first two phases were carried out in February and August. Arvind Kejriwal was preferred by 38 per cent people for Delhi CM’s post, followed by Sheila Dikshit (30 per cent) and Vijay Goel (21 per cent). The AAP would have received 32 per cent vote share, followed by the Congress (28 per cent) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (24 per cent), said the party survey.

Among the seats where AAP is leading, 17 show a clear victory margin while at 12 seats trailing by a considerable margin. “The party needs to work on 21 seats, where it is trailing, but is on recoverable ground. Twelve seats show a significant trail,” said Yadav. Yadav said

the Congress was their main opponent and not the BJP which is no longer popular among the masses. Replying back to the perception that “AAP is likely to spoil the chances of both BJP and Congress”, Yadav said that  the party is no longer a spoilers in Delhi and instead the top contenders now.

The salient issues listed in the survey from all constituencies are water, corruption, electric bills, women’s safety, education and health.The main issues for voters are water (28%), cleanliness (18%) and roads (11%), while  survey said corruption was an issue only for 3% voters. The survey clearly indicates that there was a wave in favour of the party.
