Ahmedabad: The exit poll results are out and this time too, Gujarat will remain saffron by a huge margin. The BJP, which has been in power in the state for three decades, will register a massive victory, as per the predictions made by two exit polls.
If the numbers are to be believed, the Congress party, which is the major Opposition in the state, will lose even its sitting seats, while the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) won’t create much of an impact.
