AAP's Delhi leaders claim Kejriwal's popularity not declining; confident of sweeping Lok Sabha polls in Delhi
A pre-election survey conducted by India Today-CICERO has showed that Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) popularity is declining day by day. According to the survey, post Lok Sabha polls when the results will come out, AAP will be having only two out of seven Delhi Lok Sabha seats in its account. The survey has given five seats to the BJP and just 0-1 seat to the Congress.

The survey says that if Assembly polls happen in Delhi right now then BJP's Dr. Harshvardhan is preferable CM by 29% voters, while Kejriwal by 19% and Shiela Dikshit will be the choice of mere 11%/.

On the declining popularity of AAP, when we spoke to Akhilesh Pati Tripathi, party's MLA from Delhi's Model Town Assembly, he termed the findings of the survey just as rumours.

“The Delhiites are always with us, and all these rumours about AAP's downfall in Delhi is been created by our oppositions. Initially the people of Delhi were upset with Arvind Kejriwal's resignation but now they are with us.”

He claimed that AAP would win all the seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi.

“According to our survey, we are going to win all the seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi. People are very keen to vote AAP. Only 1-2 per cent people are against us, otherwise the whole Delhi is with us,” added Tripathi.

The survey says that for the Prime Ministerial post Narendra Modi is choice of 44 per cent voters, while Kejriwal is favorite candidate of 24 per cent. The Congress's Rahul Gandhi is choice of only 19 per cent people.

Although the survey presents a negative picture about AAP, but there are some staunch supporters of Arvind Kejriwal, who are volunteering for the his brain child leaving their lucrative jobs. Amar, a mechanical engineer, is one such person who has taken two months leave from his Delhi-based MNC and is dedicating his entire time for campaigning for the AAP. 

In his words, “We are with full hopes that AAP will come at the center as well as state. We are seeing our future with AAP, that is why I have taken a two months leave from my work and supporting AAP. If I don't do it now, then we will be at the same position. Once AAP will come to power, then we will be through.”
