- BJP is single-largest party in Uttar Pradesh, exit polls show
- Very close call in Punjab, one poll forecasts AAP-Congress tie
- BJP seen winning Uttarakhand, Goa and in Manipur 2 polls present conflict
Remember the usual health warning: exit polls often get it wrong. Results will be declared on Saturday, when you can watch election guru Prannoy Roy on NDTV, starting at 7 am on air and on our site and apps. For now, we're looking at the poll of exit polls for each state - the aggregate of different polls.
Who will win Uttar Pradesh which has 403 seats? The majority mark is 202. The BJP gets 211 according to the poll of polls - that means it will form the government. Mayawati places third in all options.
For Punjab, based on five exit polls, it's nearly too-close-to-call. Two polls show the Congress winning, the other shows AAP ahead; two place the parties neck-and-neck. The aggregate shows the same with the Congress ahead by just two seats. The Akali-BJP incumbent alliance is demolished.
Uttarakhand, which has 70 seats, is a landslide win for the BJP according to three exit polls, but a fourth poll shows the BJP and the Congress tied. The aggregate shows BJP decisively winning the hill state.
Three exit polls for Goa, which has 40 seats show the BJP retaining the state.
Manipur which has 60 seats is forecast to pick the BJP in one poll, and the Congress in another.
