Notwithstanding the drubbing in the Rajouri Garden Assembly bypoll, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) claimed that its internal survey has predicted a massive victory for it in the civic polls in Delhi.

AAP leader Ashish Khetan said that as per the survey, it will win 218 of 272 seats. It has given the BJP, which has been controlling the three municipal corporations for the past 10 years, only 39 seats, whereas the Congress is predicted to win eight seats.

Independents and smaller parties will win in seven seats.

The party also claimed that it is projected to get 51.2 per cent of the votes, while the BJP and the Congress will bag 28.1 per cent 9.2 per cent, respectively. Independents and other parties could get 11.5 per cent of the votes

Khetan said the survey, carried out between 7-17 April , interviewed 31,507 people.

The three municipal corporations of Delhi (MCDs) go to poll on April 23.

The party has recently suffered drubbing in the bypoll to the Rajouri Garden Assembly constituency, where its candidate forfeited his deposit. The BJP wrested the seat from the AAP.

Survey shows an overall satisfaction level of 80 per cent with electricity bills and 72 per cent with water bills across segments in Delhi. Sixty-two per cent of the respondents in the survey agreed with the question that the central government could take electricity and water away from Delhi government and hand it over to MCDs after elections
