The national capital witnessed a heated campaign in the fortnight preceding the assembly polls. A couple of senior BJP leaders drew wrath from the Election Commission for allegedly making provocative and inflammatory speeches. Union Minister Anurag Thakur and West Delhi MP Parvesh Sahib Singh Verma faced a campaign-ban of 72 and 96 hours, respectively. While Thakur was reprimanded for making a crowd chant "desh ke gaddaro ko...goli maaro *****", Verma was banned for calling Shaheen Bagh protesters as "rapists and murderers".
Despite an aggressive campaign by the BJP, including an attempt to turn Delhi polls into a referendum over the Shaheen Bagh anti-CAA protests, the party's prospects appeared to be only marginally improving vis-a-vis 2015. While the exit polls forecast an aggregate of 56 out of 70 seats for the AAP, the BJP was expected to be restricted to 13 constituencies. The Congress, as per the surveys, would struggle to open its account.
