“This time the BJP government will definitely be formed. Modiji has done a lot of work in the country,” said Gupta.

According to reports, Gupta has assets worth ₹1.48 crore. Credited to have turned Rohini into a model municipal unit, Gupta’s foray into politics goes back to his student days. He was a student leader in Delhi university.

Almost all the exit polls predicted a comfortable victory for the Aam Aadmi Party. The exit polls say that AAP could win 48-68 seats out of the 70 seats in Delhi, while the BJP could bag 11-19 seats. The minimum seats needed to form a government is 36.

The AAP government has tackled various issues close to the middle class like - education, water and power supply and more. However, the BJP too had stepped in to promise homes to slum dwellers - which became a bone of contention between Modi and Kejriwal governments.
