All exit poll surveys have correctly predicted that the grand old Congress party is not likely to open its account.
In the elections, the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is making another attempt to return to power, while the Bharatiya Janata Party is determined to stage a comeback after 22 years.
The Congress, which ruled Delhi for 15 years between 1998 and 2013, is expecting a resurgence in its vote share.
In the last elections in 2015, Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP had registered a landslide victory by winning 67 of the 70 seats. The BJP had got three seats while the Congress drew a blank.
The AAP is contesting on all 70 seats this time, while the BJP has fielded its candidates from 67 seats and has left three seats for its allies — two for Janata Dal (United) and one for Lok Janshakti Party (LJP).
The Congress is contesting on 66 seats, leaving four seats to its ally Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD).
