Exit polls

New Delhi: The BJP-led alliance will win the Assam assembly elections, three exit polls predicted on Monday evening, two of them giving it a comfortable majority in the 126-member house.

The India Today-Axis exit poll gave 79-93 seats to the Bharatiya Janata Party combine, 26-33 to the Congress and 6-10 to the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF).

The ABP-Nielsen predicted 81 seats to the BJP coalition, 33 to Congress and 10 to the AIUDF.

According to Time Now C-Voter exit poll, the BJP and allies would get 57 seats, the Congress 41, AIUDF 18 and others 10.

In the last elections in Assam, the Congress — which has been in power in the state for 15 years — won 78 seats, the AIUDF 18 and the BJP five seats.
