Delhi Assembly Elections 2020 | 'Exit Polls are not exact polls, Kejriwal losing his own seat': Meenakshi Lekhi
New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: BJP leader Meenakshi Lekhi on Saturday brushed off exit polls that predicted a clear majority for the Arvind Kejriwal led Aam Aadmi Party in the Delhi Assembly elections, saying "exit polls are not exact polls".
While expressing the BJP will perform well, she added that the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is losing his own Assembly seat.
"We used to have these review meetings daily. Today, this meeting took place a bit early. In this review meeting, we analysed what we, our workers observed on the ground, the strong and weak points. Second, the exit polls were analysed," she told ANI after a meeting.
Recalling the exit polls during the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, she said: "Exit Polls are not the exact poll. I want to give an example that in 2019, exit polls were giving 220 seats to NDA whereas BJP alone won 303 seats. I am sure BJP will perform well."
"I am saying Kejriwal is losing this Assembly seat. I do think so and I am saying that with complete faith. BJP is winning it," the BJP leader said.
Earlier the Delhi BJP Chief Manoj Tiwari had predicted a BJP victory soon after the elections. His tweet added that no one should blame the EVMs.
"All these exit polls will fail. Please save this tweet from me. The BJP will form the government in the city with 48 seats. Please do not look for excuses and blame the EVMs (Electronic Voting Machines)," he wrote on the micro-blogging site.
Meanwhile, an aggregate of five exit polls from Times Now, India Today, Republic TV, ABP News and TV9 Bharatvarsh has indicated that AAP will win in between 47-64 seats-- a drop from its record score of 67 in the previous Assembly election. BJP is expected to win up to 23 seats, the exit polls suggested. The majority mark needed to form a government in the 70-seat Assembly is 36.
Voting for the Delhi Assembly elections took place on Saturday. Counting will be held on February 11.
