The BJP(NDA) has been given 38 seats in the exit poll, a figure so low that it can disappoint Prime Minister Narendra Modi who spent most time canvassing in the state.

The Congress, scoring just 2, fails again to show any sign of improving its tally in a state where Priyanka Gandhi Vadra made a much hyped debut by being appointed General Secretary, in charge of Eastern UP.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi (Amethi) and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi(Rae Bareli) are the two possible winners for India’s oldest party in the region dominated by the Nehru-Gandhi family for the past 70 years, according to exit poll survey.
