Opinion polls predicting the future of political parties are indicative of the fact that election season is here.

Four states (Assam, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and Kerala) and one union territory (Puducherry) are all set to go for polls in April and May. Counting will be held on 19 May.

Times Now and CNN-IBN unveiled their findings from the opinion polls they conducted during their respective primetime shows and this is what the overall picture looks like.

The opinion poll by India TV and CVoter in Assam give the lead to the Bharatiya Janata Party. The state which is currently ruled by Congress’ Tarun Gogoi might just fall into the BJP’s hands. Sarbananda Sonowal, the Union Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports is the party’s chief ministerial candidate.
