The big day is here. The counting for five state Assembly elections is underway and as per the early trends, BJP is leading in Uttar Pradesh while AAP is leading in Punjab. This trend was predicted by the Exit Poll surveys.
UP CM Yogi Adityanath is leading from Gorakhpur Urban constituency while Akhilesh Yadav is leading from Mainpuri constituency.
Uttar Pradesh is a key state in the five state elections. No political party has retained power in the last three decades and BJP is hoping to break this myth.
In Punjab, former cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu is leading from Amritsar (East) constituency while shockingly ex-CM Captain Amarinder Singh is trailing from Patiala constituency.
In Goa, Manipur and Uttarakhand, the BJP and Congress are neck-to-neck. In the initial trends Congress is leading in all the three states but it has to be seen as the counting progresses.
