BJP Win In Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh; AAP Sweep Delhi, 30,000 Crore ‘Satta’ On 2013 Elections

By Sunaina Shah | INN Live

Exit polls have given BJP a big reason to smile after the assembly elections 2013 in five states. According to the exit polls, the BJP will sweep in the four of the five states—Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Delhi—Congress may retain power in Mizoram.

Congress is projected to lose Delhi and Rajasthan while the BJP will continue to rule Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.

In Rajasthan, with the halfway mark for the state assembly at 100 to form the government, the average of various exit polls show the BJP winning 138 seats and the Congress just 44. Some, however, show the BJP tally stopping at 110.
In Chhattisgarh, the fight will be neck and neck with the ruling BJP winning 44 seats and the Congress 33. One exit poll claimed the BJP will increase its last poll tally by three seats to touch 53 and the Congress would win 33 seats, down by five.

A C-Voter Survey result indicated that AAP is set to make an impressive debut, but won’t bag more than 15 seats. A Chanakya survey, however, said that the party might clinch a decisive victory with 31 seats. Another survey by the India Today group predicted that AAP will be restricted to winning only six seats in Delhi. The Delhi exit polls by C-voter called 20 seats for Congress, 31 for BJP and 15 seats for AAP. AC Nielsen called 16 seats for Congress, 37 for the BJP, and 15 seats for AAP. The exit poll by ORG predicted 20 seats for Congress 20, 41 seats for the BJP and just 6 seats for AAP. And the Chanakya exit poll said Congress would win 10 seats, the BJP 29, and AAP 31.

In Madhya Pradesh, the India TV C-Voter poll projects a BJP victory with a reduced majority. The ruling party is predicted to win 128 seats out of 230, coming down from 140, and the Congress going up from 71 to 92. In Chhattisgarh, the BJP is falling two short of simple majority, and it is slated to win decisively in Rajasthan.

In Mizoram, the Congress is two short of simple majority in a house of 40.  The ABP-Nielsen exit poll shows the BJP to be a clear and easy winner in the four states.

According to our sources, bookies have placed bets worth Rs. 30,000 crores on the polls outcome. Bookies in the capital are betting big on BJP to win the assembly elections. They have also put chief minister Sheila Dikshit "comfortably" ahead of her rivals — AAP president Arvind Kejriwal and BJP's Vijender Gupta in the New Delhi seat.
