Exit Poll Results 2021: BJP to retain Assam, DMK in TN, LDF to win in Kerala and Puducherry goes to NDA
New Delhi, Apr 29: The exit poll projections for assembly elections 2021 in Assam, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and Puducherry on Thursday sprung a few surprises, contrary to the polling pattern of the states and how things have been playing out before the elections.
Exit polls forecast a tight contest between the incumbent Trinamool Congress and the BJP in the high-profile West Bengal assembly polls.
In Assam, the BJP is expected to retain power as nearly all pollsters predicted a clear majority for the saffron party in the 126-member Assembly.
In the southern states, the CPM-led LDF is likely to beat anti-incumbency and retain the power in Kerala. In Tamil Nadu, the DMK-Congress alliance is predicted to upstage the ruling AIADMK-BJP alliance in the state.
In Puducherry, the NDA is set to form government in the Union Territory.
