Gujarat exit poll projections: BJP set for landslide victory

New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is most likely to make a massive comeback in Gujarat – a state that the saffron party has been ruling since over 2.5 decades. Unlike the 2017 Gujarat assembly election, which was largely a two-party battle, the Aam Aadmi Party’s entry made the current contest a three-cornered fight.

Other parties in the state are expected to get 2 to 6 seats in Gujarat

However, the exit poll result, which don’t always get it right, shows that BJP is likely to win for the seventh consecutive term.

The India Today-Axis My India exit poll has predicted that the BJP may secure 46 per cent vote share in Gujarat, followed by Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) with 26 per cent and 20 per cent vote shares, respectively.

Other parties in the state are expected to get 2 to 6 seats in Gujarat.
