The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) surged ahead in the first hour of vote count in both Gujarat as well as Himachal Pradesh.

 
The initial trends on Monday indicate that the BJP may go past the magic halfway mark in Gujarat. It is likely to be a neck and neck rack in Himachal Pradesh.
 
However, the initial trends may well change in the coming hours.
 
In Gujarat, ABP News showed that the BJP, which has been in power in the state for the past 22 years, was ahead in 82 seats while the Congress was comfortably placed in 52 seats. Indiatoday.in too showed that the BJP was winning in 82 seats and the Congress was going to get over 52 seats. Indianexpress.com showed that the BJP was likely to coast home in 65 seats while the Congress was well placed in 44 seats.
 
 
In Himachal Pradesh, ABP News said that the BJP was getting 18 and the Congress was going to snag six seats. There are a total of 68 assembly constituencies in the state. Indiatoday.in said that the BJP was leading in 11 seats while the Congress was ahead in seven seats.
