IANS  |  New Delhi 

The BJP may get 25 seats, the Congress 24 and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) 18 in the Delhi assembly polls, says a Times Now-CVoters survey released on Thursday.

AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal is the most popular figure for chief minister's post with 34% people choosing him against incumbent Sheila Dikshit (31%) and Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) Harsh Vardhan (24%).

For Rajasthan, the survey says the BJP will gain 7% vote share and get 112 seats. The Congress' tally is likely to come down to 65.

Vasundhara Raje emerges popular with 58% voters choosing her compared to 24%  opting for present Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot.

In both Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh, the Congress is seeing an upswing, but not enough to emerge the winner at the polls.

In Chhattisgarh, the survey says, the Congress may gain three seats in the tribal belt.

While the BJP has been forecast to come down to 40 seats from the present 50, it will still hold majority in the state assembly.

In Madhya Pradesh, according to the survey, the BJP will get 126 seats, down from the present 143, and the Congress will get 88, up from 71.

A total of 58% voters chose Shivraj Singh Chouhan as the chief minister compared to 23% who opted for Jyotiraditya Scindia.
