The latest CVoter pre-poll survey of March 2019 for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections has predicted the BJP-led NDA falling just short of the majority mark of 272, winning 264 seats.
The UPA has been predicted to get 141 seats out of 543 in total. The other parties have been projected to get 138 seats.
Party-wise, while the BJP is projected to get 220 seats, the Congress is predicted to win in 86 seats.
The NDA total includes the Shiv Sena tally and the UPA total includes the Janata Dal (Secular) tally.
Now, if the UPA is to stitch post-poll alliances in the states of Assam (AIUDF), Kerala (LDF), Uttar Pradesh (SP+BSP+RLD) and West Bengal (TMC), its total tally would increase to 226 seats, the survey said.
Meanwhile, if the NDA is to stitch up post-poll alliances, its tally would go up from 264 to 301.
