The AAP and BJP offices in Delhi are all decked up as the counting of votes is underway. Both parties are in a tight contest in the Delhi MCD elections 2022. Some visuals show the "AAP ready with a room full of balloons amid tight contest with BJP in Delhi civic polls".
The mood at the AAP office in Delhi  was seen celebratory on Wednesday morning with patriotic songs blaring through loudspeakers as the latest counting trends showed the party just inching ahead of the BJP in the MCD polls. Both parties are locked in a nail-biting contest. As of 12 noon, the AAP has won 75 wards while BJP has bagged 55. The AAP is also leading on 60 seats, followed by the BJP which is ahead in 48 wards.
As the counting continues, a video shared by News 18 showed AAP workers breaking into a victory dance.
Most exit polls predicted a huge win for the AAP over the BJP with the Congress being a distant third. While the AAP had fielded 138 women candidates, the BJP and the Congress had nominated 136 and 129, respectively.
The high-stakes election to the 250 wards of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) was held on December 4, sealing the electoral fate of 1,349 candidates in voting machines. An average voter turnout of 50.48 per cent was registered in the elections.
In the 2017 civic election, the BJP had won 181 of the 270 wards. Polling could not be held on two seats due to the death of candidates. The AAP had won 48 wards and the Congress 27. The voting percentage that year was around 53.
This year, the highest polling percentage (65.72) has been recorded in ward no. 5 (Bakhtawarpur), while the lowest (33.74 per cent) was registered in ward no. 145 (Andrews Ganj).
