New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) could be headed for a landslide victory in the Delhi municipal elections with two exit polls predicting the party finishing way ahead of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Congress with over 200 of the 270 wards where polling was held Sunday.

Polling was held in 270 wards of the three municipal corporations of Delhi (MCD). The election to two wards has been postponed due to the death of candidates.

Going by the projected figures, the AAP could well be staring at a rout on its home turf, barely two years into its rise to power bagging a staggering 67 of the 70 Assembly seats, while the Congress’s attempt to regain ground may come a cropper.

According to the India Today-Axis exit poll, the BJP may bag anything between 202 and 220 seats, while the AAP and the Congress will score something around 23-35 and 19-31 respectively.

The CVoter-ABP exit poll claimed the BJP was likely to sweep Delhi with 218 seats, limiting the AAP and the Congress to 24 and 22 seats respectively.
