Except for Punjab, the BJP has been in power in all the other states. It is a high-stakes election in UP, which is dubbed as the semi final to 2024. Counting of votes begins at 8 am.Several exit polls have forecast a clear majority for the BJP in UP, and for the Aam Aadmi Party in Punjab.Exit polls also predicted a hung assembly in Goa and a tight race between the BJP and the Congress in Uttarakhand.The BJP and the Congress have already started moves to woo other parties in case they fail to cross the majority mark.If the BJP gets a majority in the 403-member UP Assembly, it would be the first party to get a consecutive second term in over three decades. If AAP wins Punjab, the party would be forming a government outside Delhi for the first time.
