The Times Now VMR Exit Polls for 2019 Parliamentary elections has pegged the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led alliance to bag 56 seats in the important state of Uttar Pradesh.

The anti-BJP, non-Congress Magagathbandhan of Samajwadi Party(SP), Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) is predicted to win no more than 20 seats.

While the BJP is definitely losing about 15-17 seats, the exit poll predicts that the party will do well voteshare wise. The party polled 42.6 per cent of the vote in 2014 and is predicted to get 44.8 per cent in the 2019 polls.

The Congress is expected to win two seats - likely the family pocket borough seats of Amethi and Rae Bareily contested by Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi respectively.

Talking of Uttar Pradesh, here is our prediction for the state: BJP not falling below 48, Mahagathbandhan not crossing 30. Watch the full video here.
