Written By Monica Aggarwal | Mumbai | Published:

With the completion of the seventh and final phase of voting on Sunday in seven states and one union territory of India, the polling in the all-important 2019 Lok Sabha polls - the largest exercise in democratic franchise anywhere in the world - has officially come to an end. With an estimated 900 million citizens voting in thousands of polling booths in every corner of the country, what remains now is the final vote-counting which will encapsulate the results of 39 days of voting and determine the composition of the 17th Lok Sabha, and onwards from there, the next government of India. However, before that moment of truth on May 23, the Republic Media Network has broadcast India's biggest exit poll - the mega double exit poll in collaboration with the country's top pollsters Jan Ki Baat and CVoter. 

After conducting extensive on-ground surveys all across the country following each of the seven phases of the 2019 polls, the double Republic Exit Poll presents a projection of how the seat-shares and vote-shares could turn out for each of the states and union territories of India, and put together, project whether the BJP and NDA will be able to repeat their historic mandate of 2014 and conversely, whether the Congress, UPA will be able to make a fightback from reaching a historic low.

In the 2019 polls, while the Congress is looking forward to retaining the momentum from the assembly polls, the BJP is aiming to topple the Congress vote-share by highlighting the welfare policies initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Central government. In 2014 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP won massive victory with 10 out of 11 seats in Chhattisgarh, while Congress was left to one seat which is Durg.
