The Congress on Saturday trashed the opinion surveys conducted by the Aam Aadmi Party and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Both parties have projected themselves to be winning the Delhi Assembly polls to be held on December 4.

The ruling party called the exercises “fake” and “malicious”. “The parties are conducting surveys and misleading people. These surveys are fake and malicious and not good for democracy,” said Delhi urban development minister Arvinder Singh.

He ridiculed the claims by AAP and the BJP, questioning how both the parties can form the government simultaneously. The newly-formed AAP had released a survey on Friday and claimed to bag between 45 and 50 seats in the upcoming polls.

The minister said the Congress need not worry about these surveys as it has maintained contact with people in its tenure. “For the past 15 years, we have been in power and that is a proof which shows we are poised to continue our work,” he said. 

A BJP internal survey projected the party’s state unit chief Vijay Goel as top favourite candidate for the post of chief minister against the incumbent Sheila Dikshit.

Singh was accompanied by his cabinet colleagues Harun Yusuf and Raj Kumar Chauhan who gloated over the BJP’s internal wrangling over who will be chief minister if the party is voted to power.

“If they are so sure of winning the elections, why are they fighting over the chief ministerial candidate. People can imagine they just want to come to power and are not concerned about the problems and development of Delhi,” Singh said.

“The BJP president (Vijay Goel) is a victim of frustration; his leaders are fighting with each other over the issue of the CM candidate.”

“The BJP continues making false allegations. They have given false data about the shortage of water and power. The Congress has done enough to meet the growing demand in respective areas,” Yusuf said.
