New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) may win half the seats in the 70-member Delhi Assembly, falling just short of a clear majority, as per the projection of an opinion poll on Monday.

AAP is looking to make a strong challenge and is likely to win 29 seats, one more than what it had last time, in the February 7 elections, according to the ‘India TV-CVoter’ opinion poll.

Congress, however, was projected as doing worse than last time, when it hit a low of eight seats and was relegated to third position behind BJP and AAP. The forecast gave it only five seats.
