Exit polls predict Akali Dal-BJP rout in Punjab

Exit polls predict Akali Dal-BJP rout in Punjab

With the dangers of polarisation looming over the Hindi heartland of UP, considerable movement of narcotics in Punjab, and a not so optimum an environment in Manipur, the elections were a challenge. But the polls were divided on whether the Congress or the Aam Aadmi Party, which is fighting its debut assembly election in the state, will form the next government.

According to VMR's exit poll predicts as many as 200 seats for the BJP, 120 for the SP-Congress alliance and 64 for the BSP.

News 24-Chanakya and India Today-Axis have predicted massive Modi wave in UP as according to them BJP will clinch 280 plus seats.

While the BJP+ is expected to get anywhere between 160-190 seats, the SP-Congress is likely to get stuck at 110-130. Today's Chanakya toed a similar line and predicted 285 seats to BJP, 88 to SP-Congress and 27 to BSP.

But for a clear and comfortable majority, support of the grand alliance could have proved to be crucial for the BJP. As well as significant infrastructure spending, his party had vowed to provide a toilet for each household within five years along with a laptop complete with one year's worth of free internet for the state's youth.

The exit polls haven't looked into how seats will change depending on small but important factors like the extent of the votes received by AAP and the damage done to the BJP by the Goa Suraksha Manch and the MGP.

However, in the state of Punjab, the ruling BJP-Shiromani Akali Dal alliance was projected to have suffered a setback.

The Congress meeting headed by Goa Pradesh Congress Committee president Luizinho Faleiro, on the other hand, met party's candidates and election agents.

Jennifer A Monserrate of the Congress won with the highest margin of 1,151 votes among the women contestants, but was also the lowest margin victor in the overall contest. But India News-MRC predicted the Congress' victory in Uttarakhand with 38 seats. ABP Lokniti projected 34-42 seats for BJP and 23-29 seats for Congress. India TV C-Voter projected a tie by predicting 29-35 seats for both Congress and BJP. He also hinted at no Congress-AAP alliance in Goa. Every one of the exit polls that were put out on Thursday says the BJP will be the single largest party in Uttar Pradesh. Even its absorption of the Congress leadership had its ramifications as it led to resentment among the RSS cadres and traditional BJP workers as the party had to give tickets to all of them or their wards.
