The anti-incumbency factor against the Congress dispensation in Uttarakhand seemed to have worked in the Bharatiya Janata Party’s favour, as it is predicted to sweep the state by registering a full majority. An exit poll survey carried out by the India Today group, in association with Axis, claimed the BJP will win between 46-53 seats and the Congress between 12 and 21. News24-Chanakya, meanwhile, predicted the BJP to win at least 53 seats and the Congress just 15 seats. The MRC has predicted 38 seats for Congress, 30 for BJP and 3 for other candidates.

Here are the exit poll predictions:

NewsX-MRC: BJP (38), Congress (30), Others (2)

Aaj Tak-Axis My India: BJP (46-53), Congress (12-21), Others (1-2)

India TV-CVoter: BJP (29-25), Congress (29-35)

News 24-Chanakya: BJP (53), Congress (15), Others (2)

India Today-Axis My India: Congress (12-21), BJP (46-53), BSP (1-4), Others (1-2)

In the 2012 assembly polls, the Congress won 32 seats and the BJP won 31 seats. The state briefly came under President’s Rule but it was lifted after the Supreme Court intervened in the issue. Both the ruling Congress and the Opposition BJP leveled allegations of horse-trading and bribery against each other.
