Chandigarh, February 1
The latest opinion poll by India Today-Axis found Congress to be leading the pre-electoral race in Punjab. Congress is predicted to win 60-65 seats out the total 117 contested.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is expected to emerge at the second position, winning 40-44 seats. On the other hand, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) could be restricted to merely 11-15 seats, the opinion poll claims.
With the elections fast approaching, campaigning by various political parties gained momentum. All parties are busy in mudslinging. All opposition parties are criticizing the BJP and Akali Dal combine. In this context, India Today and Axis conducted a survey.
