tough even for popular leaders like Ajay Maken who may not find it easy
to escape public anger over price rise, corruption and an economy that
has slowed down.

Delhi held by Sandeep Dikshit, seems safe for Congress but the party is
making a spirited effort to win back the vote in jhuggis and
unauthorized colonies that it lost to AAP.

and the rallies of Sonia Gandhi at Ajmal Khan Park and Rahul Gandhi at
Dakshinpuri were a relief to the party as against an embarrassing

Ramesh Bidhuri, the party's candidate from South Delhi, is the only one
who formerly contested a Lok Sabha poll for the party.
section of the middle classes is inclined towards Modi as PM and is
disappointed with Kejirwal's penchant for protests and dharnas, and the
promise of a stable government holds their attention.

East and East Delhi. Here, this vote is exploring ways to keep Modi out.
While Muslims have been traditionally rallying behind Congress, AAP
hopes to make inroads.
