Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its allies are expected to win Lok Sabha Elections 2014 with a clear majority, according to the CVoter Exit Polls.

The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will have 289 seats, it predicts. Of these, BJP would hold 249, while allies would make up 40. This means that there could be a surge of nearly 130 seats for the NDA in comparison to 2009 elections, when they had secured only 159 votes. 

The United Progressive Alliance (UPA), on the other hand, is expected to win 101 seats which is a huge fall of 158 votes as compared to the 2009 elections. Numbers suggest that 78 of these would be for Congress, while 23 would come to the allies.

In the last Lok Sabha elections, the UPA had formed government clinching 259 seats to victory. 

As per the exit poll, NDA will have 38% of vote share and the Congress 25%. The rest of the parties will together claim 37% of the vote share.

If what the exit polls predict, happen to reflect the truth, the NDA would have gained 12% in the vote share as compared to the previous elections. The UPA will has lost almost equal percentage of vote share as the exit polls say that it will have 11% of the vote share.
