A senior BJP leader said here on Monday that a survey conducted internally by the Delhi BJP indicated that the party may win 170 of the 250 wards in the MCD elections scheduled to be held next month.

According to Delhi BJP media chief, Harish Khurana, the survey with a sample size of 43,750 people was conducted between November 13 and November 25.

The elections for 250 wards of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) will be held on December 4. Results will be declared on December 7.

 “The survey conducted in all the 250 wards shows that the BJP is going to win 170 seats. There are 150 wards where BJP is in a very strong position while there are 20-25 other wards where the party has an edge over other parties,” Khurana said.

Delhi BJP president Adesh Gupta had said during campaigning on Sunday that the BJP would win 180 wards in the MCD elections.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has claimed that his party will win 200 wards in the MCD polls. He had also said that the BJP would not win more than 20 seats in the elections.

The BJP, in the 2017 municipal corporation elections, had won 181 of the 270 wards where voting was held, routing the AAP and Congress. The AAP had bagged 48 wards while Congress was restricted to 30 municipal wards. The three municipal corporations ruled by the BJP were unified into 250 wards under MCD earlier this year by the Centre.
