Recently, IBN news channel conducted pre poll survey in Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat to see pre poll trends in both these states. Both Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat are going through Assembly elections. Assembly election in Himachal Pradesh will take place on 4th Nov, 2012 while Assembly election in Gujarat will take place on 13th Dec and 17th Dec. Results of both state assembly elections will be declared on 20th Dec, 2012.
In both these states, BJP has present government; therefore, lot is on stake for BJP. As per pre-poll survey BJP has clear edge in Gujarat and Narendra Modi is likely to win Gujarat for third time. While in Himachal Pradesh, it has given marginal edge to BJP over congress. If we go by this survey then BJP can emerge winner in both states. This is truly great news for BJP and a bad news for Congress. However, it is still too early to say anything because many times reports of surveys and exit polls go wrong. For actual outcome, we are required to wait till 20th Dec, 2012.
