Ahmedabad, Dec 17: Buoyed by the impressive voter turnout in the second and final phase as well of the Assembly elections, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said the impressive percentage will force political experts to consider "pro-incumbency" factor in their discussions.

"This is the record polling after the formation of the state. We have a popular term in anti-incumbency but after this state elections, political pundits will have to adept and discuss the term pro-incumbency," Modi said here on Monday night.
