A pre-poll survey projected Naredra Modi-led BJP sweeping Gujarat, Rajasthan and Karnataka and the party-led NDA giving a big jolt to ruling Congress-NCP alliance in Maharashtra in the Lok Sabha elections.

The NDTV-Hansa Research survey, which released the electoral projections of 319 seats in 12 states on Thursday, says AIADMK is projected to win 27 out of 39 Lok Sabha seats. It has predicted only 10 seats for DMK. Out of 319 seats, the survey gives NDA 166, UPA 52, others 85.

The survey predicted BJP-Shiv Sena alliance is likely to win 33 seats out of 48 seats while Congress’ tally is projected to come down to 12 – a loss of 13 Lok Sabha seats from the 2009 position.

It also says Raj Thackarey’s MNS is likely to win one seat in the Lok Sabha polls. The poll projects 23 seats to BJP in Gujarat’s 26 Lok Sabha constituencies and 21 seats in Karnataka (out of total 28 seats) by staging a comeback from the poor show in last year’s assembly polls there.

In Madhya Pradesh, BJP is projected to sweep 24 out of 29 seats and the survey gives only four seats to Congress in the BJP-ruled state.

According to the survey, BJP-LJP alliance in Bihar is likely to win 23 seats of 40 Lok Sabha seats. While the survey gives 11 seats to Congress-RJD alliance, ruling JD(U) is projected to win just 5 Lok Sabha seats.

Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress is projected to win 32 of 42 Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal. The Left parties are projected to get only 9 seats–6 less than the last time and Congress one.

The survey also predicted emergence of Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi after its stunning show in assembly polls. According to it, the Arvind Kejriwal led party is likely to win four of the seven seats in Delhi, BJP 2 and Congress one.

The survey says 42 per cent of Indians backed Narendra Modi as the leading choice for the next Prime Minister. Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi emerged as the second choice with support of 27 per cent of people.

    yes sure, post election will look more abvious to us that Mr. Modi will become PM. once he become PM he will continue for more than 10 years. I don't think Mr. Modi can repair the w india over night, what is destructed by wrong government with the support of ignorant Indians. but we will witness a boost in indian position in glabal stage. And our economy will flourish to the high level.

          Not sure if it's an individual that matters in running a country or the policy set by the party. Bring in movie stars and kicking out all together veteran leaders just to show a bunch of political MP who keep jumping from party to party presuming the gr is greener on the other side is not going to get India anywhere stronger. I am not playing any fav for any party, let the best one rule India. But with so many greed butterflies , I would presume Mr Modi should focus more on his leadership than just trying to be PM. Shatrughan Sinha you are no Arjun and never can be, just don't BS everytime you open ur mouth.

            One cannot guarantee the authenticity of these surveys. These have often been proven wrong. The clear picture will come soon post the LokSabha elections.
