However, exit polls have always been treated with a pinch of salt by all political party leaders. There have been quite a few reactions to the exit polls, many of which offer the point of view of the political party itself or which reflect contrary views as well.
Many BJP leaders had many different reactions to their potential victories in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh. Current Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani has said that the BJP will win 150 seats, much more than what exit polls have predicted.
"We will get more than 150 seats... That was our target," Mr Rupani said during a press conference recently, while adding that the slight drop in the percentage of people who voted in the 2017 Gujarat elections, when compared to the 2012 elections, would not affect the BJP's performance at all.
In Maharashtra, where the BJP shares a strained relationship with ex-ally Shiv Sena, its party chief Uddhav Thackeray said there was a huge difference between the exit polls and the ground realities in Gujarat. He also congratulated Rahul Gandhi for taking over as Congress chief.
The Congress' leaders meanwhile, have also been quick to dismiss the exit polls.
Congress leader Manish Tewari also said exit polls have been wrong in the past, saying they were "sensational filler".
However, the most surprising reaction came from one of BJP's own leaders, Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Kakade, who, breaking with the party's sentiments, said the BJP would not win enough seats in Gujarat to form the government. He also claimed to have had his own team do a survey in Gujarat.
"Forget absolute majority, the party will not even get enough number of seats to form the government. The Congress on the other hand will reach close to the majority mark," said Mr Karkare.
