Before that TRUMP VS Kejriwal
Let's turn back and see the past:
Since 2013, it is to be noted that Kejriwal has been a key opposition leader of the BJP as it prevented the nation's single largest party from forming the government in New Delhi.
In 2014 Lok Sabha election, Kejriwal took on the then Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
In 2015 Delhi Assembly election, Modi and Kejriwal launched no holds barred attacks on each other as the BJP and AAP engaged in an electoral fight. However, Kejriwal returned as Delhi CM with 67 of 70 seats.
In the capital, a total of 672 candidates are in the fray. Among them, 593 are male and 79 female candidates.
As much as 62.59% voter turnout was recorded in Delhi on February 8, when the elections were held in a single-phase.
Most of the exit polls predicted that Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP will retain power, winning two-thirds seats while some have even predicted three-fourth majority in the 70-member Assembly.
