New Delhi: Counting of votes in the high-stakes Assembly Elections in West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Assam, Kerala and Puducherry will be taken up on Thursday morning.

S Sreesanth, the BJP candidate in Thiruvananthapuram, hopes that his party would be able to get 30 to 35 seats in Kerala Legislative Assembly Election 2016 and opens its account in Kerala.

Exit polls have predicted that the Trinamool will retain power, with different agencies putting the majority figure ranging from a slender 155 to a huge 253 in the 294-member house.

All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) chief Badruddin Ajmal dismisses the verdict given by Assam Election 2016 exit poll and says he was confident that his party would get 30 to 40 seats in the northeastern state.

Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi notes that there was widespread use of black money in Tamil Nadu during Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly Election 2016. With the help of surveillance and flying squads, the authorities were able to seize more than Rs 110 crores, adds Zaidi.

he counting of votes will decide the fate of approximately 8,300 candidates including Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi in Assam and CM contender BJP’s Sarbananda Sonowal and Himanta Biswas, Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and Karunandhi in Tamil Nadu, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, CPI(M) leaders VS Achutanandan and Pinarayi Vijayan in Kerala, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and CPI(M) Suryakanta Mishra in West Bengal and Chief Minister M Rangaswamy in Puducherry.

As per various exit polls broadcast on May 16, Assam appeared to have voted for change, giving the BJP its first government in the northeastern state. Not just Assam, Congress may lose Kerala too. DMK has been tipped to regain power defeating AIADMK in Tamil Nadu. Only West Bengal seems to have bucked the trend in exit polls by re-electing Trinamool Congress led by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who managed to hold on to power by defeating the Left-Congress alliance convincingly for a second consecutive term. In Union Territory of Puducherry, the Congress could take solace from its projected victory in alliance with the DMK.

Counting of votes will commence at 8 am and end by 3 pm.

First trends are expected to be available after an hour. By 12 noon, a clear picture could emerge on the winners.

Just a few more hours and the wait will be over. Counting of votes in the Assembly Elections in West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Assam, Kerala and Puducherry will be taken up on Thursday morning.
