Meanwhile, a series of recently conducted exit polls predicted a clear majority for the BJP-led NDA. Seven separate exit polls estimated that the NDA government would return to power with an overall tally ranging from 287-365 seats in the 543-member Lok Sabha. All the polls predicted that the BJP would retain its dominance in the Hindi heartland and make considerable gains in the east while failing to claim much ground in the south, except in Karnataka, reports The Indian Express.
The Bharatiya Janata Party led National Democratic Alliance has projected the incumbent Narendra Modi as the next prime ministerial candidate while the Opposition parties have not made any formal announcement in this regard.
