Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on Wednesday said the pre-poll surveys predicting victory for AAP in the Delhi polls will be proved wrong and the SAD-BJP alliance will sweep the elections.
"SAD-BJP alliance will sweep the upcoming polls for the Delhi assembly," Badal said here.
The five-time chief minister said, "The results of these (Delhi) elections will be contrary to the opinion polls done by the media in favour of Aam Aadmi Party."
Badal said the surveys had been wrong earlier and asserted that the SAD-BJP combine would get a thumping majority in the ensuing Delhi elections.
"People hold the key to success in any election and in Delhi, the people's verdict is clearly in the favor of SAD-BJP alliance," he said.
The Shiromani Akali Dal is contesting Delhi polls in coalition with BJP. Manjinder Singh Sirsa from Rajouri Garden is contesting on SAD symbol (scale) while three other Akali candidates: Jatinder Singh Shanty from Shahdara, Avtar Singh Hit from Hari Nagar and Harmeet Singh Kalka from Kalkaji are contesting on BJP symbol (lotus).
Earlier, speaking at the inauguration of an oil seal unit at Basma near Rajpura, Badal said the state was thrown into fiscal disarray by the previous Congress government at the Centre which gave incentives to the neighbouring hilly states only.
