The BJP has surged ahead in all the three municipal corporations of Delhi. The party would secure majority in East and North Delhi, and emerge as the single largest party in South Delhi as per the latest lead projections. The civic election results would be a setback for the Congress as questions are bound to be raised about Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit’s ability to deliver.
In East Delhi Corporation and North Delhi Corporation the BJP is eyeing majority with the Congress way behind. The BJP has won or is leading in 31 seats while Congress is ahead in only 14 seats in the East. The big surprise is that smaller parties are ahead of the Congress, leading in 20 seats. In North Delhi Corporation, which has 104 seats, BJP is ahead in 64 seats while Congress is ahead in 24 seats. Others are leading 16 wards.
