    NEW DELHI : After voting for the Delhi Assembly elections ended in the evening today, exit poll results are now being released. If Arvind Kejriwal wins the election this year, it would be a hat-trick for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) which had managed to win 67 out of 70 seats in the 2015 polls. The BJP, which secured all the seven Lok Sabha seats in the national capital during the 2019 general election, is hoping to make a comeback after 20 years. The saffron party had won only 3 seats in 2015 while the Congress had none. Counting of votes will be held on Tuesday, February 11.
