It may be noted that Axis My India has been most reliable pollster in last few years. Though, data & numbers are subject to scrutiny, its findings have been most accurate as compared to other agencies.
Samajwadi Party & its allies are projected to win 71-101 seats while BSP is seen getting around 3-9 seats. Congress is seen getting 1-3 seats while others will have to settle with just 2-3 seats, says the exit poll agency.
In the 2017 elections, the BJP won a thumping majority and grabbed three-fourth quarters majority of 325 seats. BJP had won 312 seats while its allies including Apna Dal and SBSP won 9 and 4 seats respectively.
SP suffered a humiliating defeat and was reduced to below 50 mark while Congress & BSP had to console themselves with 7 and 18 seats respectively.
