New Delhi, Feb 8:
Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Delhi state unit will convene a review meeting Sunday evening, a day after exit polls predicted that the party was headed for a defeat in the assembly polls.
The meeting will be held at 5 p.m. at the BJP headquarters (14, Pandit Pant Marg) in the capital, a party official said.
It will be attended by all 70 candidates, including party’s chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi, Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay, Delhi poll in-charge Prabhat Jha and other office-bearers.
Some national leaders are also expected to attend the meeting that will analyse and review the party’s performance in the polls.
Most of the exit polls Saturday evening indicated that Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is set to return to power in Delhi, relegating the BJP to the second position and virtually wiping out the Congress party.
According to the exit polls, the AAP is likely to get between 31 and a staggering 54 seats while the BJP could bag 17 to 35 seats. The Congress, which ruled Delhi for 15 years until December 2013, would be wiped out, winning no seat or at best four seats. (IANS)
