The keenly-contested elections in Gujarat, the home state of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is likely to have an impact on the central government's economic agenda as well as on Lok Sabha polls in 2019. The News X poll predicts BJP will get 110-120 and Congress 65-75, while 2-4 seats will go to others. The BJP leaders were right in claiming that the traders may have been unhappy with the party over the issue opf demonetisation, but they would not ditch the Prime Minister. The official results will be declared on Monday. But after the results were out, it was a different one contrary to the predictions of exit polls.
The Congress will also have reason for some cheer as it is expected to improve on its performance since the 2012 polls, but not one of the polls predicted that it would even come close to winning the election. Today's Chanakya projects 135 seats for the BJP and only 47 for Congress. In north Gujarat, the Congress leads on 18 of the 32 seats in the region and the BJP leads on only 14.
The exit polls also predicted a comfortable victory for the BJP in Himachal Pradesh.
