The national capital is headed for a hung assembly even after a year of President's rule, according to a Hindustan Times-C fore survey.

According to the survey, both AAP and BJP are expected to get 31-36 seats, with the Congress seen sliding to between two and seven seats. The evaluation was conducted between January 10 and 19 and was repeated after Kiran Bedi was nominated as BJP's chief ministerial candidate.

The results of the Delhi Polls will be out on 10 February, three days after the voting. The slugfest will be between BJP's Bedi, AAP's Arvind Kejriwal and Congress' Ajay Maken, chosen by their respective parties for the prestigious battle of Delhi.

With support of 43% of the people, former CM Kejriwal is still the preferred choice for the post of CM. Bedi (39%) is second, followed by Maken (12%).

A total of 7,147 voters were interviewed across Delhi between January 10 and 19. Of them 3,146 were asked about their CM and party choices after Bedi's anointment.

Before Bedi was named as BJP's chief ministerial candidate, the survey found that AAP was ahead with 34-39 seats, followed by BJP (29-34) and Congress (2-7).

As many as 47% of the respondents felt that Bedi could play the game-changer in a tight battle.

Corruption is the number one issue on people's minds followed by inflation, women's safety, shortage of drinking water and high power rates.
