Lok Sabha Polls 2019: UPA Will Win 293 Seats And Form Govt, NDA Will Be Reduced To 250 Seats, Suggests Political Analyst
The BJP will not be able to repeat its 2014 performance in Uttar Pradesh, analyst Partha Das said.
Ahead of Lok Sabha polls 2019, election result analyst Partha Das suggested on Monday that the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) will cross the half-way mark by registering a victory in 293 constituencies and form government at the Centre.
According to Das’s analysis, the UPA will win 50 out of 80 seats in Uttar Pradesh, assuming Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and Rashtriya Lok Dal form a pre-poll alliance and become a part of the UPA after the results are announced. It is important to note that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won 73 out in Uttar Pradesh in 2014.
In Bihar, Das suggested that the NDA will have an edge over the UPA. He predicted that the BJP, Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) will win 26 seats, while Rashtriya Janata Dal, Congress, Communist Party of India (Marxist) and Upendra Kushwaha’s Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) and Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM) will register a victory in 14 seats.
Out of 42 seats in West Bengal, Das predicted that NDA will win only three seats, while UPA will win 39 if Trinamool Congress joins the alliance after elections.
While NDA will win 32 setas and UPA will win 16 seats in Maharashtra, in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan UPA will perform better and register a victory in 15 and 18 seats, respectively, Das suggested.
Further, the NDA will fail to win any seat in Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry, but manage to win 14 out of 28 seats in Karnataka and 16 out of 25 seats in Andhra Pradesh, Das predicted. The NDA will also show impressive performance in Northeastern states and grab 19 out of 25 seats, Das suggested.
