New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief ministerial candidate Harsh Vardhan Wednesday said his party is ahead of both the Congress and the Aam Admi Party (AAP).

“BJP is far ahead of the Congress and the AAP. It is the Congress and the AAP who are contesting for the second position. Nobody can make a dent in our vote bank,” Harsh Vardhan told reporters after casting his vote in the Krishna Nagar constituency.

He also requested the people to come out in large numbers and vote.

“If a tribal state like Chhattisgarh can get 74.77 voting percentage then why cannot Delhi have 80 percent voters turnout? When people here are all literate,” said Harsh Vardhan.

Voting began at 8 a.m. Wednesday to decide the political fate of 810 candidates contesting for the 70-member Delhi assembly.
