NDA to sweep seats in most North states

The exit polls released on Sunday shortly after the end of the final phase of the Lok Sabha Polls predict the BJP-led NDA will return to power in the 9 West-Central states and union territories of Chandigarh, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand.

In Uttar Pradesh, the SP-BSP combine may not be able to stop the BJP express. However, exit polls predict that the Akhilesh-Mayawati combine will fare better than most against the saffron party.

Most exit polls project a 45-seat win for the BJP and ally Apna Dal, and 32 seats to the SP-BSP alliance.

This time around too, exit polls suggest a dismal performance by the Congress, with ABP-Nielsen and Times Now-VMR and Republic CVoter projecting a two-seat win.

In Rajasthan, according to Times Now-VMR, the NDA will get 21 seats. The BJP had swept the state in 2014, winning all the 25 seats of the state.

In Delhi, the NDA is likely to win all 7 seats, with only the India Today poll giving one seat to the UPA, leaving the AAP in the dust.

In Haryana, the NDA is predicted to have a complete victory with all 10 seats under its belt. Meanwhile, in Punjab, the UPA is predicted to return to power with up to 11 seats and the NDA is likely to win 3-5 seats, leaving the AAP with just 0-1 seats.

In Uttarakhand, the NDA is likely to win all 5 seats, leaving all other parties in the dust.

In Jammu and Kashmir, an alliance is likely according to the polls as both the NC and the NDA are predicted to win 2-3 seats each and the Congress could win a maximum of 1 seat. Finally, in Chandigarh, the BJP is likely to take the sole Lok Sabha seat.
