Exit polls predict clean sweep for NDA, INDIA bloc lagging far behind

New Delhi, June 1 (UNI) A clutch of exit polls on Saturday predicted a clean sweep for BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and Prime Minister Narendra Modi heading for a hat trick.

At least four Exit polls, NewsX-D-Dynamics, Jan Ki Baat, Republic Bharat-MATRIZE and Republic TV-PMARQ, have projected over 350 seats for NDA, while Congress party-led INDIA alliance managing to secure only 125-161 seats.

The BJP had won 303 seats in the 2019 Lok Sabha election. NDA’s tally was 353 in the last general election.

In the 543-member Lok Sabha, a party or alliance needs 272 seats to get a simple majority.

In the past, exit polls have on several occasions proved wrong. For instance, most of the exit polls failed to get the pulse of the voters in the last Karnataka state assembly elections.

The exit polls showed BJP significantly raising its vote share in the southern states of Tamil Nadu and Kerala even as the party was seen getting very few seats.

The seventh and the last phase of general election concluded today and the counting of votes is scheduled on June 4.
