On Thursday, a swing of exit polls granted that the BJP would be the front runner in Uttar Pradesh while disagreeing on whether it would obtain a majority. In Punjab, there was unity that the Akali Dal BJP combine would face a condensed but no consensus on whether the Congress or AAP would finish in front. The polls also differed on the conclusion in Uttrakhand and Manipur while projecting the BJP as the largest party in a probably hung Goa assembly.
at the same time as every one of the exit polls put the BJP in front, the SP-Congress alliance in subsequent spot and the BSP third in UP, the number of seats predictable for the BJP and its allies varied from 161 to 285, a array that makes moreover a hung house or a clear winner possible if any of the polls are precise. The lowest estimate for the BJP alliance came for Voter which gave the saffron merge around 161 seats in the 403 member assembly. The top of the range was Today’s Chanakya’s estimate of 285. Three of the six polls adages no clear winner whereas the rest gave the BJP a majority.
Resting on Punjab all but one poll saw the ruling Akali BJP alliance being abridged to single digits in the 117 member assembly. One pollster, CVoter gave the AAP a clear preponderance with 63 seats and another Axis gave the Congress a mass but the rest predicted a close contest between the two and a hung house. In fact, two recommended absolute parity flanked by AAP and Congress.
Three out of five polls on Uttrakhand alleged that the Congress would succeed and another predicted a dead heat with neither getting to the half way mark. The circumstances in Manipur also ruled by Congress was parallel with one poll predicting a clear though a narrow win for the incumbent and another suggesting BJP would finish just petite of a majority. With this poll projecting there would be 12 others, many apparently averse to Congress; a BJP government is possible in the state for the initial time. Exit polls have predicted a decimation of the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal BJP unite in Punjab. They predict a neck to neck contest flanked by the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party.
There are several reasons for the BHP’s love for the Congress in Punjab
- If AAP wins in Punjab it will turn out to be the only regional ruling more than one state and in this crate the union territory of Delhi. That could crutch up the AAP to the political center stage at the national level and might drive it to the position where the party could become a rallying force for anti-BJP parties, which had their origins in anti-Congresses.
- Despite the fact that the congress seems to be caught in a time deform, the AAP has already moved to Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, the two states that will depart to polls in November-December this year and where the BJP has elevated stakes. If the AAP gains an impetus from Punjab it could emerge as the BJPs principal challenges in these two states this year and in others the subsequent year onwards.
- The BJP has had the superior of the Congress in states that conventionally witness bipolar contests. The AAP could turn out to be a spoiler. At the same time as triangular contests are alleged to favor the BJP, the AAP has turned this theory upside down in Delhi previously and now in Punjab it forecasts half true.
- Contrasting Congress whose organization is in a shambles the AAP has confirmed to be a master in building up an organization and party infrastructure in new territories right from the grassroots levels in no time. It’s as much skillful at using new age communication tools such as the social media as at practicing the conventional way of politics centered around castes and religions and that counterbalance the BJP’s advantage.
- The AAP government in Delhi has had turbulent relations with the NDA regime at the center at an institutional level and with senior BJP leaders at individual levels. The BJP is not enamored of the predictions of another AAP chief minister pampering in public spats with the prime minister and outer central ministers.
