Exit polls for 2019 Lok Sabha elections predicts 8-12 seats for the Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) and the remaining seats likely to go full to the Biju Janata Dal (BJD).

Should the exit poll predictions turn out to be accurate the result would be a severe drubbing to the Naveen Patnaik led BJD which has 21 seats in the current Lok Sabha.

CVoter predicts 10 seats for BJP and 11 for BJD. Republic TV's Jan Ki Baat pegs the numbers at 8 for BJD and 12 For BJP, 1 for Congress. Times Now VMR 2019 predicts 12 for BJP, 8 for BJD and 1 for Congress. India Today - Axis My India predicts more than 15 seats for BJP.


The incumbent Naveen Patnaik led BJD government has been in power for four consecutive terms with Patnaik's health being in the news of late. Exit polls predict a more favourable result for BJP in the assembly elections that were held along with the Lok Sabha elections.
