New Delhi [India], Apr 23 (ANI): Expressing confidence about winning the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) polls, the Congress on Sunday said the misrule of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the breach of promises by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal would lead to the success of the grand old party in the civic polls. "We are expecting very good results. People are fed up with the BJP rule, where it has miserably failed. So, the BJP is not in the favourable list as far as people are concerned. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is almost written off by the people, because after the Rajouri Garden elections, it is evident that people have rejected the party. The breach of promises by Kejriwal and misrule of the BJP are before the people of Delhi. People will also remember the good old days when the Congress had provided very good administration in the corporation. So, we are fairly hopeful that we will get good response from the people of Delhi," Congress leader P.C. Chacko told ANI. Echoing the same, Congress leader Tom Vadakkan said that the party has high expectations from the MCD polls. "We have high expectations from the MCD elections and it is after all people's mandate. We are keenly watching. Our workers are enthusiastic and candidates are extremely confident. So, let us see and wait for the people's mandate," he said. With AAP, Congress and BJP in the fray, polling for the MCD will be held today. The polling will be spread over 13,000 booths spanning 272 wards of three MCD civic bodies. The Delhi Election Commission has set up over 13,000 polling booths, out of which over 3,000 have been identified as sensitive while around 1500 as hypersensitive. Nearly 57,000 police personnel have been deployed to ensure free and fair polls in the national capital. To avoid any untoward incident during the elections, the Delhi Government has ordered that dry day will be observed in the national capital on the polling day. (ANI)
