The 70-seat Delhi Assembly concluded the voting process on February 8 evening with a meager 55% voter turnout. The Assembly polls in the national capital saw a three-way electoral battle between the incumbent AAP, BJP and the Congress party.  While BJP aggressively revolved their campaign around the anti-government protests at Delhi's Shaheen Bagh, AAP kept development as their core poll plank, while the Congress remained nearly absent from the picture. According to the Republic Jan ki Baat Exit Polls, here are the predictions for some of the key constituencies of the national capital:

New Delhi

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is projected to easily win a third consecutive term as a legislator from the high-profile New Delhi constituency. The AAP chief was up against BJP leader Sunil Yadav and Congress' Romesh Sabharwal. 

Uttam Nagar     

AAP candidate Naresh Balyan is predicted to win the seat against BJP's Krishnan Gehlot and RJD candidate Shakti Kumar Bishnoi. Congress fought the Delhi Assembly elections in alliance with Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD).

In East Delhi's Patparganj, AAP is predicted to have an edge over the contenders. Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia is projected to win the seat against the two first-timers--BJP's Ravi Negi and Congress leader Laxman Rawat. Irregular power cuts and water supply are the core issues of this constituency.

Meanwhile, the BJP is fighting a prestige battle to win the national capital following months of anti-government demonstrations across the country.
