India Today-My Axis India exit poll predicts that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is expected to win two to four seats in Punjab, while the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is expected to win zero to two seats.

The BJP's vote share is predicted to go up by 16 per cent points, with it expected to secure 26 per cent votes. AAP's vote share is also expected to go up as it won only one seat in 2019.

The vote share of Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) is expected to be the same as was in 2019. It won two seats in 2019 and is expected to win two to three seats this time as well.

Congress is expected to win seven to nine seats, which is around the tally of eight seats that it won in the 2019 elections. However, its vote share is expected to be reduced by 9 per cent points.

Most exit polls differ in their prediction for Punjab as Republic-Matrize exit poll expects that AAP will be the single-largest party in Punjab with three to six Lok Sabha seats.

The BJP is expected to win zero to two seats while the Congress is predicted to win zero to three seats with Others bagging zero to two seats as per Republic-Matrize exit polls.
