Earlier on Saturday evening, the post-election surveys predicted a victory in up to 61 seats for the Arvind Kejriwal-led party -- hinting at an absolute pro-incumbency sentiment in favour of the Delhi Chief Minister. BJP which led an aggressive campaign centred around the Shaheen Bagh protests, could improve its tally to as much as 26 seats, the exit polls suggested. The final results of the polls would be declared on January 11 by the ECI.
