Congress may emerge top party in polls: Survey

congress-may-emergeThis is a piece of good news to the party in trouble. Congress appears to be on correct track in Punjab Assembly polls. According to India-Today-Axis opinion poll, it is likely to emerge as the single largest party in Punjab by winning 49-55 seats in the Assembly election due early next year.

The survey also predicts Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which has witnessed both a massive interest by the voters as well as bitter dissent within, is a close second with 42-46 seats.

In terms of vote share, while the Congress may command a third of Punjab’s votes (33 per cent), the AAP will trail at 30.

The Congress tally, however, is still a few seats short of a simple majority in the 117-member state Assembly. However, the party is likely to form an alliance with Navjot Singh Sidhu’s Aawaz-e-Punjab, which might manage to win a few seats and help the combine reach the magic figure of 59.

BJP_Shiromani Akali Dal alliance may suffer severe drubbing, end up with just around 20 seats.
