NewsX-Today's Chanakya Exit Poll: BJP to form government in Assam, Mamata in Bengal

As states like Kerala, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and Assam went for polls in the final phase of the Assembly Elections on Monday, NewsX-Today’s Chanakya Exit Poll gave an indication of the elections.

The results of the NewsX-Today’s Chanakya Exit Poll indicate that Assam looks all set for a major overhaul with the BJP making inroads to the seat of power in the state; Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress looks in command for another victory in West Bengal; the LDF may form a government in Kerala but UDF may spring some surprises too; the Congress-DMK alliance may push Jayalalithaa out of power.

NewsX-Today’s Chanakya Exit Poll data from Assam suggests the state may see a major swing of fortunes for the BJP and the party may finally take the mantle of governance from the Congress with the BJP projected to win 90 (+/- 9) seats. It also shows that 70 per cent of the respondents sought a change in the current regime. Congress is projected to bag 27 (+/- 7) seats.

Mamata Banerjee’s governance seems to be working in West Bengal and the TMC chief looks all set to retain power in the state as 60 per cent of the respondents did not want a change in the current government. The data on West Bengal Assembly elections suggests 210 (+/ - 14) seats for Trinamool. The BJP however, seems to be not making the desired impact in the state despite aggressive campaigning and the survey gives 14 (+/ - 5) seats to the party. The Left-Congress alliance in the state has been predicted to win 70 (+/- 9) seats in the state.

The data on Kerala projects that the Congress might not be able to retain power in the state with the LDF being predicted as the winner with 75 (+ / - 9) seats in a House of 140. The poll data further suggests that the United Democratic Front (UDF) will perhaps get only 57 (+/- 9) seats. The BJP is predicted to get 8 (+/ - 4) seats in the southern state.

The survey for the recently concluded Tamil Nadu Assembly Elections gives an indication of a victory for the alliance of Congress with its old UPA partner DMK with 140 (+/ - 11) seats. Data suggests that the Jayalalithaa-led AIADMK is on its way out of power in the state, bagging 90 (+/ - 9) seats in the 234-strong Assembly.
