New Delhi: How well Congress Party will perform in Delhi depends largely on how minority voters vote for the party. Muslims and Sikhs will play an important role in the election for the three Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) corporations.
Both the communities make more than ten percent of the total population respectively in the union territory with more than twenty million people. The important aspect about the two communities is the fact that they are spread out across the metropolis with heavy concentration in some places and marginal presence in other areas.
The preparation for MCD election is in full swing. While Kejriwal led Aam Aadmi Party had announced its list of candidates long time ago, Congress did it only yesterday. But it has just released of candidates from just over half of the constituencies. The party has named candidates from 140 constituencies out of the total of 272 seats.
