Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party is in neck-and-neck race with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi while BJP-Shiv Sena combine has a clear edge in Maharashtra, a pre-poll survey predicted on Monday.

The survey carried out by CNN-IBN and CSDS said that BJP-SS-RPI alliance may secure between 23 and 29 seats in Maharashtra while Congress-NCP could end up getting 16 to 22 seats.

Regarding Delhi, it said that though AAP's popularity takes a slight dip since January, it still remains strong and is neck-and-neck with BJP in Lok Sabha seats and remains ahead in Vidhan Sabha.

The opinion poll has projected that AAP may get between 2 and 4 seats in Delhi if Lok Sabha polls are held today while BJP could also win the same figure. Congress, which had won all seven seats in the last Lok Sabha polls, may end up with only one seat in Delhi.

It said that there is seven per cent vote share drop for AAP in Delhi since January and it may secure 35 per cent votes, one per cent less by BJP, which is projected to get 36 per cent votes. Congress, which had secured 59 per cent votes in 2009 in Delhi was down in the dumps at 16 per cent projected vote share. In the past one month, it has improved and is expected to get 22 per cent votes, the survey said.

Modi Most Preferred PM Candidate

The survey said 31 per cent of voters in Maharashtra prefer Narendra Modi as Prime Minister while 16 per cent prefer Rahul Gandhi followed by six per cent rooting for Sonia Gandhi. It said that 37 per cent Delhiites want Modi as PM while 26 per cent prefer Kejriwal and 15 per cent Rahul. It projected a nine per cent fall since January among those wanting to see Kejriwal as PM.
