According to the Zee News-BARCA exit poll on Gujarat Elections 2022, BJP is set to win a record number of seats (110-125) out of 182 seats. The BJP has been in power in Gujarat for the last 27 years and PM Modi who participated in the party’s poll campaign has a high approval rating in the state. Usually, the battle for Gujarat has been between the BJP and Congress but this year, Aam Aadmi Party also entered the arena in hopes of bagging a few seats to make its presence felt in the state. The exit poll showed that AAP may win more seats in Southern Gujarat.
Earlier there were worries that AAP may make a dent in Congress’ vote share. This fear may be rooted in reality as the number of seats that Congress is likely to win is not looking too impressive.
