According to CSDS survey, the BJP is likely to steer clear in poll bound states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chattisgarh. In Delhi, the situation is expected to be that of a hung assembly.
The survey findings revealed that out of the 72 Parliamentary seats in these four states, the BJP is expected to win 57 seats while Congress tally is likely to go down by 28 seats.
The survey also predicted that NDA's tally could grow from 159 in 2009 to between 187 and 195 in the coming elections.
On the other hand, the UPA tally could drop from 262 in 2009 to between 134 and 142 in next year's general elections.
But before the actual voting, there are several factors that can act as a game-changer like Mulayam Singh Yadav in Uttar Pradesh, Congress alliance with Nitish Kumar's JD(U) or Lalu Prasad Yadav's RJD, Telangana decision on Andhra Pradesh and many key issues.
