According to the post-poll analysis by Axis-My-India for the India Today Group, the BJP is projected to emerge victorious in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Goa.
With the two-month long election process in five states – Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Goa and Manipur – coming to an end and the votes scheduled to be counted on Saturday, it’s time for the India Today Axis-My India exit poll to give you a sense of which way the wind blew.According to the post-poll analysis by Axis-My-India for the India Today Group, the BJP is projected to bag an astonishing 251-279 seats in Uttar Pradesh. Axis projects the Samajwadi Party and Congress alliance will get only between 88-112 seats, while the BSP is forecast to crash somewhere between 28-42 seats.
The India Today-Axis My India exit poll released predicts that the Narendra Modi magic continues to work for the saffron party looking to return in the state after 15 years.The good news for the BJP extends to Uttarakhand, where it is projected to get a clear majority, bagging between 46 and 53 seats in the 70-seat assembly.The BJP will make a mega comeback in the state after Chief Minister Harish Rawat failing to keep faction-ridden Congress together.The BJP is projected to emerge as the single-largest party in Goa as well, but could fall short of a clear majority. Axis projects the BJP could get between 18 and 22 seats in the 40-seat Goa Assembly.
Punjab and Manipur appear to be the silver lining for the Congress, with the party expected to form the government in both states. The India Today-Axis My India exit poll says a resurgent Congress is set to win a comfortable majority in the 117-member Punjab Assembly by winning 62-71 seats.The India Today-Axis My India exit poll predicts that the Congress’s bastion guarded by Okram Ibobi Singh in Manipur is still unassailable. The Congress is in power in Manipur since 2002, when Singh became the Chief Minister of the state for the first time.
