According to the latest pre-poll survey by ABP News-Nielsen if Lok Sabha elections are held today, a big surge for BJP from the last election is predicted, taking the seat count for the National Democratic Alliance that it leads to 233. That compares with 159 Lok Sabha seats for NDA in 2009.

The opinion poll has found that NDA is set to win 233 seats in the 543-seat parliament while the incumbent UPA-II government is projected to win a mere 119 seats.

According to the projection, BJP alone will get 209 (it won only 116 seats in 2009) seats. 

The Congress is projected to get only 91 (won 206 seats in 2009) seats--115 less than 2009 seat position in the Lower House.

Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP predicted to get around 4 seats in the 543-member House of Lok Sabha.
