The Times Now-VMR and Zee News-Axis exit polls predicted that the BJP would win 51 of the total 68 Assembly seats in the state.

India Today and Zee News give 99-113 seats to the BJP and 68-82 seats to the Congress; Times Now and Republic give 108-109 seats to the BJP and 70-71 seats to the Congress; ABP gives BJP 91-99 seats, Congress 78-86 seats. Leaders of both Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have asserted that their respective parties will win the elections. The three are seen as the safe seats for the BJP. In the big cities, such as Ahmedabad, Surat, Rajkot, Vadodara, despite the strong Patidar movement led by Hardik Patel, and the OBC-Dalit agitation driven by Alphesh Thakor and Jignesh Mevani, the cities seem to have stuck their necks out to retain the incumbent BJP. Poll results will come out on Dec 18.

Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Friday mocked the Congress party and said that the latter should not react so soon over exit polls as it is yet to experience a major shock after final results are declared, reports ANI. In the 2012 assembly polls, the BJP had won 115 seats, against the 61 of the Congress party.

After Bihar elections in 2015, except one, all exit polls indicated a clear win for BJP. BJP president Amit Shah had in a speech told BJP MLAs and workers not to burst crackers if they do not achieve the target of 150 plus seats.

According to ABP-CSDS survey, in Saurashtra, the BJP will win 31-37 seats and the Congress may get 16-22 seats.
