New Delhi:
Mayawati’s reign in Uttar Pradesh seems to be ending in the Uttar
Pradesh Assembly Elections after her inability to secure her voters'
loyalties and Mulayam Singh's persistence in wooing the state’s voters
this time around.

According to a STAR News-Nielsen Exit poll, the BSP, which had bagged 206
seats in the 2007 Assembly Elections seems to have been left high and dry
this time. The exit poll also predicts a revival of sorts for the
Congress, however it is the Bhartiya Janta Party which is finishing third.
This is a preliminary figure of the exit polls and exact data is awaited
at 8:30 pm.

STAR News-Nielsen exit poll, conducted in 202 constituencies of the state,
predicts 160 seats for the SP in the 403 member house, 86 seats for the
BSP-a massive drop from their share in 2007 elections; 80 seats for the
BJP and 70 seats for the Congress-RLD alliance.

In vote share, BSP is predicted to get only 24% from its 30.43% in the
2007 elections. SP’s vote share is 26%, marginal increase from 25.43% in
2007. Congress alone gets 16% but Congress-RLD in alliance is getting 19%
vote share. The BJP is slated to get 18% of the votes.
