With the counting of votes for 70 Assembly seats in Delhi begins on Tuesday, the parties have geared up for the results as a huge number of supporters were seen at both the AAP and BJP office.
Asserting that the BJP will form the government in the national capital with 55 seats, BJP Delhi chief Manoj Tiwari said, “I am not nervous, I am confident that it will be a good day for BJP. We are coming to power in Delhi today. Don’t be surprised if we win 55 seats.”
Meanwhile, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia also showed confidence for a positive result today by saying, “We are confident because we worked for people in the last 5 years.”
Sisodia also offers prayers at his residence ahead of counting for assembly elections early in the day.
Deputy CM also took Twitter to express his devotional sentiments for the polls through a ‘shlok’ in the Sanskrit language praying to god to show the path of enlightenment.
ॐ असतो मा सद्गमय।
तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय।
हे ईश्वर! हमको असत्य से सत्य की ओर ले चलो। अंधकार से प्रकाश की ओर ले चलो। मृत्यु से अमरता के भाव की ओर ले चलो।
