Rebellion can Spoil the Game

The Congress has fielded 271 candidates for 272 seats for the three seats, while the BJP has 267 candidates while the Aam Aadmi Party has given tickets to 272 candidates. It is not easy for the parties to deal with the rebels in this election. Nearly 50 rebel candidates are in the fray. There are around 100 rebel areas in the BJP and the Aam Aadmi Party.
The main contest in the 2012 elections was between the BJP and the Congress. BJP got huge majority in the elections. Of the 272 seats, BJP got 138 seats and Congress got 77 seats. The BSP won 15 seats. On the other hand, the contest is interesting after the arrival of the Aam Aadmi Party and Swaraj Party in this time of elections.

He said that EVM machines have also been checked in front of the candidates and their representatives. The total voters in the three MCDs is about 1 crore 34 lakh 23 thousand 783. About 1 lakh employees will be present at the polling station.
Although EVMs will reach at 6.30 am in polling stations, voting will be from 8 AM to 5 PM. Many government schools are being used for elections in Delhi.
