Exit polls give BJP 7th consecutive term in Gujarat; Himachal is neck and neck, AAP win in Delhi

The Bharatiya Janata Party is headed for a massive win in Gujarat, according to exit polls broadcast by television networks after the final phase of voting in Gujarat Monday.

Hindutva party has been in power for nearly two-and-a-half decades in Gujarat.

According to exit polls, BJP is marginally ahead of the Congress in Himachal Pradesh.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is likely to tighten its grip on Delhi by winning the civic polls, said exit polls.

NDTV’s poll of exit polls gave BJP 132 of 182 seats in Gujarat and the Congress and its allies 38. That would make it the Hindutva party’s best performance since 2002, when it won a landslide in Gujarat months after the Muslim genocide by Hindutva groups in the state.

In Himachal Pradesh, the exit polls predict 35 of 68 seats for the saffron party- barely the majority mark – with the Congress close behind at 29 seats.

The exit polls also said AAP will scoop up the Delhi civic body. Of 250 wards in the redrawn civic body, AAP is predicted to win 155 and the BJP, 84. The Congress is likely to slip further down to seven seats.

The results of the Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh elections will be announced on Thursday. The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) election results will come out a day before.
