Video Editor: Sandeep Suman
Hours after the polling closed on 7 December in the states of Telangana and Rajasthan, the exit polls for all Assembly elections of Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram, Rajasthan and Telangana started rolling in. While most of them predicted a comfortable victory for the Congress in Rajasthan and Telangana Rashtra Samiti in Telangana, a neck and neck fight between BJP and Congress is being predicted in Madhya Pradesh.
Similar projections were made by various surveys in Chhattisgarh where some predict a Congress victory while others say BJP will be able to defend its fort. In Mizoram, most exit polls predicted that Congress may find it difficult to hold on to power.
Congress leaders Sandeep Dikshit and Ashok Gehlot said that the exit polls are at par with their expectations and similar results will be seen on 11 December.
On the contrary, the BJP leaders brushed the projections aside and deflected the questions on exit polls.
