‪In its November survey, the ABP-CSDS poll had predicted that BJP will still form the government with 113-121 seats while Congress was likely to get only 58-64 seats despite hugely improving its vote share.‬. Thereafter, they will proceed to Gujarat for campaigning for the assembly elections there on 9 and 14 December.

BJP sources said in Lucknow on Monday said the newly-elected Mayors along with Amethi Nagar Panchayat chairperson Chandrama Devi and Nagar Panchayat Jais chief Chandrama Prasad will meet the Prime Minister at his official residence. Amethi comprises Gauriganj and Jais municipal boards and Amethi and Musafirkhana Nagar Panchyats. The first survey, conducted in August, had projected a vote gap of 30% between the BJP and the Congress.

SP chief general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav also said the use of voter-verifiable paper audit trail (VVPAT) machines, along with EVMs, would enhance the confidence of the political parties as well as the candidates in the poll procedure.
