But they give a slight advantage to the Congress and they predict that the party will get around 55 seats, followed by AAP with around 50 and then the ruling alliance SAD-BJP with 12 out of the total 112 seats.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday accused the BJP, Shiromani Akali Dal and the Congress of working together against the AAP in Punjab, which goes to polls on February 4.

"The house is in the name of Karanjit Kaur, wife of Gurinder Singh who is a citizen of United Kingdom", he said.

Dubbing "political opportunism" as the "forte" of Congress, he said, "A party living on its last breaths, it is incapable of doing anything [for the people]".
