With hours to go for votes to be counted in the Lok Sabha election tomorrow, preparations for a grand celebration are in full swing among BJP workers and supporters after most exit polls predicted on Sunday that the ruling party is coming back with a thumping majority.
The arrangements include a 7-kg special laddoo cake and nine other similar cakes of around 4-5 kg that will be cut at the central office in the evening tomorrow. The cake costs Rs 1,000 per kg.
Other sweets include lotus shaped confectioneries, all ordered from Bengali Pastry Shop.

The party seems confident of a win after exit poll results predicted a landslide win for the BJP and its alliance NDA.
The Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led party will win almost as many seats as it did in 2014 and form a government comfortably, exit polls predicted on Sunday at the end of the national election. The poll of polls, an aggregate of exit polls, gives the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) 302 of 543 seats and the Congress and its allies 122.
