Exit polls project cliffhanger for West Bengal

New Delhi: The exit poll projections of the recently concluded assembly elections in West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Assam, Kerala, and Puducherry have been released on Thursday.

As per the poll of exit polls, analyzed by The Times of India, West Bengal is the only state which is not throwing up a clear result – it is likely to be a cliffhanger. Some exit polls give BJP a clear majority, others Mamata Banerjee a third term, and one projected dead heat.  Mamata has clearly proved a tough cookie to crack by BJP, which had a robust campaign led by Modi and-Shah. There is no doubt though that the BJP has emerged as a key player on the political landscape of Bengal.

In Tamil Nadu, in a clear verdict, the DMK led by M.K. Stalin, Karunanidhi’s son and political heir, will come to power with a big majority, dethroning the ruling AIADMK, late Jayalalitha’s party.

As per the CVoter Exit Poll for Times Now/ABP News, the BJP aligned NDA is winning Puducherry, barely retaining Assam while the Pinarayi Vijayan-led LDF is set to return to power for the second time in a row in Kerala.
