NEW DELHI, Oct 21: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will comfortably retain power in the states of Maharashtra and Haryana, say a majority of exit poll results released by a number of media organisations after the closing of voting on Monday evening.
The News18-IPSOS exit poll predicts a landslide for the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance in Maharashtra with 243 of the 288 seats in the assembly, followed by the Congress-NCP coalition winning just 41 and others 6.
The story is no different for Haryana, where the BJP is expected to get the lion's share with 75 of the 90 seats, according to the News18-IPSOS exit poll, followed by Congress with just 10 seats, relegating the party further to the margins.
The India Today-Axis My India exit poll results, however, present a conservative picture as far as the number goes in Maharashtra, predicting 166-194 seats for the ruling BJP-Shiv Sena coalition. The Congress-NCP, according to India Today-Axis My India exit poll, could finish somewhere between 72-90 seats, followed by others who could win 22-34 seats.
The India Today-Axis My India exit polls were near perfect in predicting the outcome of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections in which the NDA had won 351 seats on its own.
