Exit polls predict big BJP win, Modi as PM

GN Bureau | May 12, 2014



As India concludes voting for the 16th Lok Sabha, projections of the exit polls give a clear victory to BJP-led NDA. 

According to a CNN-IBN-CSDS-Lokniti post-poll survey, BJP is expected to do well in northern states of Delhi, Rajasthan, Haryana, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. “The BJP may virtually sweep most of these states and the Congress is staring at a massive defeat,” CNN-IBN reports in its exit poll.

Most of the poll surveys are giving the BJP-led-NDA 250 and above seats.

According to a NewsX-CVoter survey, the NDA will form the government with 289 seats while the UPA will stand behind at 101.

In Uttar Pradesh, the ABP Nielsen survey has predicted that BJP will win 46 out of the 80 seats while congress will win only on eight seats. Regional parties BSP and SP are likely to get 13 and 12 seats respectively. In Himachal Pradesh, Congress may face a rout with BJP set to get more than 50 percent votes, says one survey.

In Haryana, where the BJP was previously weak, along with the ally HJC, the party is likely to get 34 percent votes and beat the congress which is expected to get only 24 percent.

Surprisingly, the Aam Aadmi Party, according to CNN-IBN, will only getting only four percent votes even though Haryana has the strongest party cadre among all the states.

In Bihar, survey says, BJP is to win close to 30 seats out of the 40 while Lalu Yadav’s RJD is likely to make an impressive comeback with close to 10 seats.
