As polling in Delhi elections came to an end after a high octane and vitriolic campaign, exit poll results predicted a return to power for Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), giving it anywhere between 50-61 seats and 10-26 seats to BJP. However, pollsters have predicted a rout for the Congress again and netizens took to social media to poke fun at the party. (Follow Delhi elections exit poll results 2020 LIVE updates here)
With most exit polls giving Congress anywhere between 0-4 seats, the revival of the party, which failed to open its account in the 2015 Assembly elections, is unlikely this time too.
As #ExitPoll and #DelhiAssemblyPolls dominated social media trends, memes around the fate of Congress flooded the virtual world. Many quipped that the party would find solace as the result cannot get worse than last time.
BJP and AAP would be anxious about the election results. But Congress must be extremely chilled. Any number of seats they get in this election cannot be worse than what they got last time.#DelhiElection #ExitPolls

Congress, which ruled Delhi for three terms from 1998 to 2013 with Sheila Dikshit at the helm, campaigned around the development work that happened during the late CM’s tenure.
