Exit Poll Results Revealed: Major Insights for INDIA Alliance and BJP from Various Exit Polls

After India's marathon 6-week Lok Sabha polls, exit polls predict a resounding 3rd term for PM Modi's BJP-led NDA, likely crossing 400 seats. Most surveys show NDA comfortably clearing majority, while opposition INDIA alliance lags far behind. Crucially, BJP is projected to make inroads into southern bastions like Karnataka and Telangana, giving jitters to regional forces. However, the final results on June 4th will seal the fate of either the unstoppable 'Modi wave' or united opposition. #Modi #RahulGandhi #PMModi #ExitPolls #Karnataka #Telanganaelections #ModiWave #AkshatWave #LokSabhaResults #Oneindia #Oneindianews ~PR.320~ED.194~GR.125~HT.96~
