Comparison to 2014:

In 2014, NDA, UPA and AAP shared seats amongst each other in a mouthwatering contest. But the situation has changed drastically this time around. The BJP, in alliance with SAD, won six seats and was the biggest party in the state in 2014.

Congress had won three seats in the previous assembly elections, but this time around, a landslide win is projected. 

The AAP had surprised everyone winning four seats.

Projections in December:

They were projected to win 12 out of the 13 seats. BJP will face the misery of failing to open their account, but their ally SAD will save the NDA embarrassment by as they were predicted to win one seat. The AAP, which made lots of noise in 2014 as well as 2017 state elections, projected to draw a blank.
