Himachal Pradesh Election Result 2017: Both Congress, BJP Confident Of Win

BJP supporters during a rally in Gandhinagar during the Gujarat elections

The BJP chose not to name a chief ministerial candidate in the last six state elections, but made an exception in the hill state by declaring 73-year-old Prem Kumar Dhumal as their chief ministerial candidate.

Gandhinagar: In a stunning reversal of exit poll predictions, Gujarat's ruling BJP and the main opposition Congress were on Monday locked in a neck and neck fight for power as officials counted millions of votes in the just ended Assembly elections.

The poll body, however, did not restrict Prime Minister Modi's roadshow in the poll-bound state which fumed the Congress party.

Singh, who has been serving as the chief minister of the state since 2012, said that the state has witnessed a rapid development in the last five years.

Dec.14 (ANI): Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Thursday lashed out at the Election Commission for adopting a double standard after the poll body did not bar Prime Minister Narendra Modi's road show, but sent a notice to Congress president-elect Rahul Gandhi for an interview.

According to BBC , the actress" lawyer claims this is the couple's way of showing their "annoyance' for getting attacked. The 350-sq-m apartment in question is reportedly located in the French capital's wealthy 16th Arrondissement.

Mr Singh said he has been to every single pocket in the state during the election campaign and knows that the Congress is in a strong position. It sees the Congress getting between 68and 82 of the state's 182 seats.

The Congress on the other hand would win between 78 and 100 seats, the punters have said. If the BJP wins an overwhelming victory in Gujarat, the Modi administration may take more radical approaches to economic reform.

The exit poll estimates assume even more importance as voter turnout on November 9, the polling day, was 74 per cent.

None of the Gujarat exit polls expects the Congress to get less than 52 seats - that's News Nation's worst-case projection.
