New Delhi: The Republic-PMarq Exit Poll has predicted a clean sweep by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Delhi for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, projecting them to secure victory in all seven seats. The Republic-Matrize Exit Poll, on the other hand, gave 5 seats to the BJP and 2 to the AAP-Congress alliance. The data from these exit polls indicated that the BJP is set to garner approximately 58.2% of the total votes, showcasing a significant lead over its rivals. Meanwhile, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is predicted to secure around 22.1% of the votes, positioning it as the second most favoured choice among voters. The Congress party trails behind with a mere 17.8% of the projected vote share, placing it in a distant third. 

However, AAP's Somnath Bharti dismissed the predictions, saying,  “I will shave off my head if Mr Modi becomes PM for the third time. Mark my word! All exit polls will be proven wrong on 4th June and Modi ji will not become prime minister for the third time. In Delhi, all seven seats will go to India Alliance."

Republic TV's double exit poll results of general elections give a clearer picture of what citizens of the national capital feel. The exit poll data clearly suggests that while loyal voters of the Congress party have voted for the Aam Aadmi Party candidates, however, AAP hasn't shifted its vote share to the Grand Old Party. 

BJP Candidates in Fray: Manoj Tiwari (North East Delhi), Yogender Chandolia (North West Delhi), Harsh Malhotra (East Delhi), Kamaljeet Sehrawat (West Delhi),  Bansuri Swaraj (New Delhi), Ramvir Singh Bidhuri (South Delhi), Praveen Khandelwal ( Chandni Chowk).
