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.

In Gujarat, indianexpress.com showed that the BJP was leading in 89 seats and the Congress was breathing down its neck by being ahead in 83 seats. Indiatoday.in showed that the Congress had, infact, surged ahead of the BJP, by leading in 84 seats. It said that the BJP was getting 81 seats. ABP news said that the BJP was ahead in 88 seats and the Congress was getting 70 seats.

In Himachal Pradesh, ABP news said that the BJP was leading in 18 seats while the Congress was ahead in 11 seats. Indianexpress.com showed that the BJP was getting 24 seats and the Congress was gaining in 19 seats. Indiatoday.in said that the BJP was gaining in 29 seats while the Congress was leading in 20 seats in the 68 member assembly.
