On Monday, domestic shares reversed earlier losses to end higher as the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh. The BSE Sensex rose 0.41 per cent to close at 33,601.68, while the NSE Nifty ended 0.54 per cent higher at 10,388.75. The indices had dropped as much as 2.5 per cent each in early trading as initial counting showed a close fight between the BJP and the Congress.
