Exit polls show clear majority for BJP in Gujarat and Himachal

After exit poll thrill Ananth Kumar bats for simultaneous assembly Lok Sabha elections

Exit polls have predicted a comfortable victory for BJP in Gujarat, while also anticipating an improvement in the tally of Congress as compared to its 2012 results. All the exit polls showed the BJP far ahead of the Congress and above the majority mark in both assemblies. The Times Now-VMR exit poll predicted 109 seats for the BJP and 70 for the Congress while three will go to others. Exit poll conducted by ABP News-CSDS Lokniti gave the incumbent BJP a maximum of 117 seats and Congress 64 in Gujarat. Today's Chanakya projects 135 seats for the BJP and only 47 for Congress.

Gujarat recorded an estimated 68.70 percent voter turnout in the second and final phase of polling for 93 Assembly seats.

In the first phase of polls held last Saturday for 89 seats in Saurasthra, Kutch and South Gujarat, 66.75% of eligible electors had cast their votes.

According to the EC data for the 2017 elections, the highest voting was seen in Narmada district (79.15 per cent), followed by Tapi (78.56 per cent) and Banaskantha (75.25 per cent); the lowest poll percentages were reported in Devbhumi Dwarka district (59.39 per cent) followed by Amreli (61.29 per cent) and Bhavnagar (61.56 per cent).

It said the BJP would emerge as the victor in 99-113 Assembly segments in the state, while the Congress could win 68-82 seats.

"A victory for the BJP will be received well by the market while a surprise defeat (against the forecasts of the exit polls) would be a large negative surprise for the market". The survey predicted 38 seats for the BJP and 29 for the Congress in Himachal Pradesh.

Matar in Kheda district is one of the 182 constituencies in the state. The Congress had fielded incumbent Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh for the post once again.
