Early trends in the pitched battle for Delhi’s civic bodies have started trickling in as counting began at 8am. The BJP is leading in all the three corporations with Congress and AAP fighting for the second position. Exit polls that followed the voting on Sunday, had predicted a huge win for BJP in the civic polls.

The municipal body poll, which came two months after elections in five states, is expected to set the political tone beyond the Capital’s boundaries. While the BJP is attempting to fight off 10-year-old anti-incumbency in Delhi’s civic bodies, the Congress is battling exodus of top state leaders. The AAP, which is in power in the state and had bagged 5 out of 13 wards in bypolls in 2016, hopes that the civic polls will help it to recover from the jolt in assembly elections.
