With the BJP refusing to form the government in Delhi citing lack of numbers,senior leaders believe the party will get a majority in case of a re-poll.

According to senior party leaders,in eight seats the party lost by a margin of less than 2,000 votes. In case of a re-poll,the party would try to win these seats,they said.

The party has also briefed its committee members to start preparing for fresh elections in case the Aam Aadmi Party too refuses to form the government.

The eight seats where the party lost by narrow margins include Delhi Cantonment (355 votes),Vikaspuri (405 votes),Sangam Vihar (777 votes),Sadar Bazaar (796 votes),Manipur (1,103 votes) and Rohini (1,872 votes).

“There are seats that have gone to other parties despite being our stronghold. We underestimated the AAP. We will not commit the mistake again. And our candidates have understood that they need to win. We have done a thorough analysis of the situation and believe that in the next elections we will bag those seats again,” a senior party leader said.

Sources said the party’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and the RSS had already conveyed their disapproval for a minority government in the capital with the Lok Sabha elections round the corner.
