AAP fails to impress, may not win much: Exit polls

Monday, 12 May 2014 - 7:06pm IST | Place: Mumbai | Agency: DNA Webdesk

The year old Aam Aadmi Party is slated to win only minimally across the 400 seats it has contested in.

According to the C-Voter exit polls, AAP is slated to win just 1 seat in Maharashtra 3 in Punjab and probably 2 in the national capital of Delhi. 

This would come as a massive blow for the young party, which has been claiming it would win over a 100 seats during this Lok Sabha election.

The party which won a remarkable 28 seats in the Delhi assembly polls on the anti-corruption plank, has heavily targetted the Narendra Modi led BJP during these Lok Sabha elections. AAP has targetted the BJP on various issues and claimed it would beat the BJP across various cities and urban constituencies. The AAP's founder leader, Arvind Kejriwal even decided to fight against Narendra Modi directly in the Hindu holy city of Varanasi, but there too, exit polls believe he may come a close second but Modi may walk away victorious. 

But if various exit polls are to be believed, chances are the AAP may not cross even into the double digits, but the party's effect will be felt across many important seats, capturing vote share that would otherwise have benefitted either of the major political parties. 

There is a good chance the AAP played a spoiler for various candidates across India. Who will win though, will eventually emerge on May 16th when the results are declared.
