A day after the Election Commission recommended disqualification of 20 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs, rebel party legislator Kapil Mishra today claimed that an internal survey showed that it was not confident of winning back a single seat if by-polls were held.

The Election Commission yesterday found all the 20 AAP MLAs to be holding the office of profit at the time of their appointment as the parliamentary secretary in 2015. The poll panel recommended the President to disqualify the legislators. The AAP has decided to challenge the Election Commission decision.

Meanwhile, Kapil Mishra, who is already at odds with the party leadership, claimed today that an internal survey report was yesterday submitted to Delhi Chief Minister and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal with details about party’s prospects in the constituencies represented by the MLAs facing disqualification.

Mishra claimed that according to “AAP internal survey submitted to Kejriwal yesterday”, the ruling party in Delhi was “surely losing -11 seats…in the fight, if candidate changed (on) – 09 seats” while “surely winning – 00 seat”.

He also claimed that the internal survey report “recommends 12 ticket change including (those of) Alka Lamba, Adarsh Shastri, Sarita Singh (and) Praveen Deshmukh”.

Here is what AAP’s internal survey, as claimed by Kapil Mishra, says:
