New Delhi: BJP seems to have gained in four pre-poll surveys with three of them projecting it may touch the majority mark in the 70-member Delhi Assembly.

While the India TV-C-Voter survey gives BJP 37 seats, it projects 28 seats for AAP and 5 for Congress in the polls.

The Week-IMBR survey gives BJP 36 seats and AAP 29 seats while only 4 seats to Congress.

Another pre-poll survey by Data Mineria, telecast by IBN-7, has also given BJP 36 seats and AAP 27 seats, with 7 to Congress.

A Zee-Taleem survey has projected 32 to 36 seats for BJP, 30 to 34 for AAP and 4 for Congress while News Nation channel has given BJP 30-35 seats, AAP 30-34 and Congress 3-5.

An internal survey by AAP claimed a clear majority for it giving itself 51 seats followed by 15 to BJP and four seats for Congress.

AAP leader Yogendra Yadav, himself a psephologist, said in the best case scenario AAP may get 57 seats and in the worst it will bag at least 44 seats.

The India Today-Cicero pre-poll survey yesterday projected AAP will get 38-46 seats and BJP will secure 19-25 seats. Congress was placed way behind with only 3-7 seats.

In the 'Poll of Polls' by Times Now TV channel based on the results of five polls, AAP gets 34 out of 70 seat while BJP 32 and Congress 4.

Yadav termed the survey results of some TV channels as "serious underestimation of the ground reality".

In the 2013 Assembly election, BJP had won 31 seats, AAP 28 and Congress 8.
