Surveys show BJP will retain Gujarat, Congress to make gains

NEW DELHI: The stage is all set for the ballot duel in Gujarat a day ahead of the second and final phase of polling for the remaining 93 constituencies. The first phase of voting took place on December 9, in which 89 seats went to polls, primarily in Saurasthra, Kutch and South Gujarat regions.

Several exit polls have predicted that the ruling BJP will win a little over 100 seats in the state, which is way below its target of 150.

The Congress, on the other hand, was seen poised to make gains, but not enough to capture power in the state.

According to the Survey by CVoter, the BJP is likely to win 109 seats and Congress may have to settle with only 76 seats in the Gujarat assembly elections.

However, if we do a poll of polls – based on three surveys conducted by CVoter, Times Now-VMR and Lokniti-CSDS-ABP – the BJP will win 105 seats in the Gujarat assembly, while the Congress will manage only 74. The other candidates may win 3 seats, the surveys show.

The opinion poll numbers show that the ruling BJP, which has put out all the stops, appears to be cruising to victory yet again, though they differ on the margin of victory.

While the Times Now-VMR opinion poll predicted 106-116 seats for the BJP, CVoter/TV9 predicted 109 seats for the ruling party. The Lokniti-CSDS-ABP poll gave the BJP 91 to 99 seats.

These predictions put BJP in a comfortable position with 91 being the majority mark in the 182-member assembly.
