Delhi Assembly elections today

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Feb 6 � The stage is set for a battle royale in Delhi where polling will be held tomorrow for 70 seats in the Assembly elections billed as a referendum on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a view rejected by the BJP leadership, reports PTI.

The battle to win control over the national capital saw a resurgent Aam Aadmi Party giving a tough fight to the BJP which has staked its all on Modi�s image.

Over 1.33 crore electorate will decide the fate of 673 candidates in the fray for the Delhi Assembly elections. Polling will take place at 12,177 polling stations, of which 714 have been identified as �critical�. Of these, 191 are �highly critical�.

The BJP, which is out of power in Delhi for the last 16 years, made a gamble by bringing in Kiran Bedi into the party and made her its Chief Ministerial candidate which is said to have triggered discontent among the party leaders and rank and file.
