GN Bureau | December 18, 2017
An hour of vote count has showed that it is not going to be an easy win for the BJP in Gujarat as well as Himachal Pradesh, as had been predicted by the numerous exit polls.
While the early trends showed that the BJP was coasting to victory, things changed dramatically as EVM after EVM was counted.
The BJP now found itself in a neck and neck race with the Congress in both the states. According to the trends, both parties were yet to reach the halfway mark.
However, it needs to be kept in mind that these are just trends and the final results may turn out to be a lot different.
