Exit polls conducted by polling agencies AC Nielsen, C-Voter, ORG-Marg, Today’s Chanakya and CSDS show the BJP winning three of the four northern States that went to the polls recently, and emerging as the single largest party in Delhi.

The BJP is in power in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, and the Congress in Delhi, Rajasthan and Mizoram. Mizoram has not been polled by the agencies.

If the BJP in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh has been in power for a decade, the Congress in Delhi has completed 15 years and in Rajasthan one term.

Poised for return

In Madhya Pradesh, the Shivraj Singh Chouhan-led BJP government appears poised to return for a third term, securing 141 seats in the 230-member Assembly, while the Congress will get 77, if one takes an average of the five polls.

In Chhattisgarh, the exit polls show the Raman Singh government securing a third consecutive victory in the 90-seat Assembly, with the BJP winning 50 seats.

The Congress tally has been put at 37. If the exit polls are right, they are virtually identical to the 2008 results.

In Rajasthan, the exit polls have predicted that the BJP will win 138 seats in the 200-strong House and that the Congress will bag just 44.

In the 70-member Delhi Assembly, the BJP, the polls suggest, will get 33 seats, the Congress 19 and the Aam Aadmi Party 18.

@ Mr. Kasthurirangan

I am pretty sure your age is over 45 which is the reason you still are
submerged in your old politics. Please wake up and come out of your
"defunct" world to see the real India. My view is either AAP stands
alone and does what it says or it will go down "trying". At the end,
true, honest and caring Indians can say to themselves "Atleast we tried
to make a better India".

Exit poll results seem to be presenting the actual wish of Indian
society which undoubtedly want to behold BJP in power. Narendra Modi
with his endeavours and charisma has responded with a bang to all his
critics and firmly justified his candidature for prime ministerial
BJP should be winning in Delhi along with AAP. Both forming a strong
coalition holding up good and honest governance supported by strict
actions against the culprits.

The real thing is that people has become tired with the "secularism" of they looking for better rule istead of focusing on
religious spates.on the other hand congress is incessant on
disseminating the feeling of hatred among minority community toward RSS
and BJP .Upper command of congress is thinking that paranoia and wrong
prejudice can save them.this is going to br damn wrong.

It is a matter of shame that according to World Bank, about 60 per cent of Indian population is corrupted in many ways. The basic inception of corruption started with our opportunistic leaders who have already done great damage to our nation. People who work on right principles are unrecognized and considered to be foolish in the modern society. Corruption in India is a result of the connection between bureaucrats, politicians and criminals.
Earlier, bribes were paid for getting wrong things done, but now bribe is paid for getting right things done at right time.
Political corruption is worst in India. The major cause of concern is that corruption is weakening the political body and damaging the supreme importance of the law governing the society. Every Indian should remember that Politics should not be for criminals.
Tax evasion is mostly practiced by Government officials and politicians. They lead a luxurious life and do not even care about the society. People of India are to be awakened and enlightened to exercise their franchise correctly.
Special courts for speedy justice should be established. Strong and stringent laws need to be enacted which gives no room for the guilty to escape.
The one thing that needs to be ensured is proper, impartial, and unbiased use of various anti-social regulations to take strong, deterrent, and timely legal action against the offenders, irrespective of their political influences or money power. Firm and strong steps are needed to curb the menace and an atmosphere has to created where the good, patriotic, intellectuals come forward to serve the country

The prediction of the exit Post Poll results by various Polling agencies
clearly predict B.J.P. in the Drivers Seat as B.J.P. will create hat
trick in Two States in Chattisgarh and Madhaya Pardesh and regain power
from Congress in Rajasthan and single largest Party in Delhi assembly
Polls . It is clear that B.J.P. Prime Minister Candidate Narendera Modi
has ultimately succeeded in motivating the Cadre of B.J.P. to fulfill
mission 2014 .

it is really great if BJP is capturing the three states in the assembly elections and will be a fitting answer to the congress for its total mismanagement. good .congress should be punished for shielding corrupt politicians and this should be the prelude to the success story of BJP in coming Lok Sabha elections also. Jai Bharath

It is high time Indian citizens stop the dynastic rule. Hopefully a complete routing of Congress will make the High Command of Congress start believing in quality and corruption free environment. It is amazing how much the country has tolerated for the last 40 years. It is even more amazing how people like Kalmadi and Sajjan kumar are not diosowned by the party.

If the exit poll results in reality one can expect AAP the spoiler to
join with Congress on the premise of secularism. In doing so they will
say they have joined congress to keep it in check and get all their
promises carried out. However what the Delhites deserve they will get.
All AAP supporters will be shouting "Jai Ho" and congress men laughing
all the way taking dig at BJP and its PM candidate
