Exit Polls 2017 LIVE: Advantage BJP in UP, Akhilesh-Rahul fail to impress

PM Modi’s party is well ahead of rivals in Uttar Pradesh elections 2017, says exit poll

UP Elections 2017: UP Elections 2017: The exit polls on Thursday predicted a hung assembly in the key Hindi heartland state of Uttar Pradesh where BJP would emerge as the largest single party, winning anywhere between 164 and 210 of the 403 seats. Most polls also forecast a close fight between the Congress, which is seeking to return to power in Punjab after a hiatus of 10 years, and Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP, making its debut in the assembly polls in the state. Victory for Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Uttar Pradesh, which is home to 220 million people, would boost his chances of winning the 2019 general election and underscore his popularity after he made himself the face of the party’s campaign.
