Prime Minister Narendra Modi is leading the party to a huge triumph in Uttar Pradesh with the BJP taking a massive lead in current trends. The party is ahead in the state with more than 300 seats. The party is also leading by a big margin in Uttarakhand and is ahead in Manipur too. Congress is leading in Punjab and Goa.

Counting of votes in assembly polls in five states was underway amid tight security with the most riveting contest in Uttar Pradesh, seen as a gamechanger and a virtual referendum on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's popularity and his reforms agenda.

Counting of votes began at 8am on Saturday. Tens of thousands of central forces personnel have been deployed at the polling centres, including 20,000 personnel in Uttar Pradesh.

Exit polls have projected a hung assembly in Uttar Pradesh and Goa, with BJP likely to lead the table. They forecast a close fight in Punjab between the Congress, which is seeking to return to power after a hiatus of 10 years, and Arvind Kejriwal's AAP. The Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP combine could be in for a drubbing in the state.

They have predicted victory for BJP in Uttarakhand.

The Samajwadi Party-Congress alliance in Uttar Pradesh is hoping to stop the BJP juggernaut, which had earlier stumbled in Bihar and Delhi, and lead the way for opposition unity in the run up to the 2019 general election.

Congress is claiming it will wrest power in Punjab and retain its hold in Uttarakhand and Manipur. The election is also important for the nascent Aam Aadmi Party, which is hoping for success in its maiden outing in assembly elections outside Delhi and has put up a spirited fight in Punjab and Goa.
