In Uttar Pradesh and Manipur, several exit polls anticipated a comfortable victory for the governing Bharatiya Janata Party, with an edge in Uttarakhand and a close race in Goa. Exit polling indicates that Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) can make a significant leap in Punjab, for one pollster forecasting up to 111 seats for Arvind Kejriwal’s party within 117-member legislature.

At 8 a.m., the votes for the 690 seats split over five states began to be counted. As the outcomes of the five-state Assembly elections begin to trickle in, all attention would be on the dead-heat races in Uttarakhand and Goa, where the BJP and the Congress are locked in a stalemate, as per exit polls. Although most pollsters predict the BJP to cruise to victory in Uttar Pradesh and Manipur, Punjab is anticipated to see an abrupt event of power into the hands of the AAP.
