AAP’s entry makes capital election race tougher for Sheila

The electoral battle is all set to be like a 20-20 match in 20 Assembly seats in the upcoming Delhi elections . These seats, spread across the city, witnessed a close contest between the candidates of the two main parties, the Congress and the BJP, in 2008.

In many of these 20 constituencies, candidates won on thin margins of a few hundred votes. There was one seat – Rajouri Garden in west Delhi – where the slender margin of 46 votes made history as far as the Delhi Assembly elections are concerned. The political fight is going to be tougher this year for these 20 seats as the new entrant, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), has already registered its active presence.

A close analysis of the 2008 Assembly election results reveals that both the main parties had received a good share of votes and there was a very thin margin between the vote percentage of these two parties.
