Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has urged party workers not to burst crackers after victory to prevent air pollution.

The counting of votes in Delhi will take place on Tuesday (11). Exit polls have predicted a huge majority for the ruling AAP.

Some exit polls even predicted that AAP will repeat its 2015 landslide when it had bagged 67 seats and reducing the BJP to three.

Reducing air pollution is one of the main guarantees given by AAP in both the party’s manifesto as well as in guarantee card.

Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP’s) rebel MLA Kapil Mishra on Monday (10) hit out at Arvind Kejriwal by saying that it shouldn’t be surprising if Kejriwal loses election from the New Delhi seat.

He claimed that the people’s mandate is with the BJP. We know the reality as we have worked on the ground, he added.

This time, BJP candidate Sunil Yadav is contesting against Kejriwal from New Delhi constituency.

In 2015, Kejriwal defeated BJP’s Nupur Sharma by 31,583 votes.

Meanwhile, the Indian National Congress party has claimed that everyone will be surprised when the Delhi results are out.

The congress, which was in power in Delhi for decades, was reduced to zero seats five years ago.

The early trends in 70 Assembly seats in Delhi will be available from 9 am onwards.
