The Bharatiya Janata Party has hit its saturation and an antiincumbusy wave has triggered a fall of the lotus. The shining son of the Congress Party Rahul Gandhi needs to give major credit to Sachin Pilot who vigorously campaigned in MP and Rajasthan.
The Prime Minister Modi’s charm and wave has silenced itself, as per the exit polls. The counting of votes will take place on the 11th of December.
This data is just an estimate, the ground reality might be different all together. Most of the exit polls couldn’t predict the Aam Aadmi Party’s victory in 2015, so let’s just keep them for some reference.
