The BJP is banking on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s to take Delhi with its first rally on Sunday where he legalised illegal colonies of the state. Housing, education, and demand for full statehood are some of the big issues in Delhi.
In the 2015 polls, AAP secured 67 of the 70 assembly seats. For the upcoming elections, AAP has collaborated with election strategist Prashant Kishor’s consultancy firm I-PAC.
