Exit polls 2022: Yogi Adityanath wins back Uttar Pradesh, AAP wave washes into Punjab, Congress in Uttarakhand, BJP in Manipur and Congress ahead in tight Goa race



BJP wins Uttar Pradesh MLC Election 2022

The high hopes of the Samajwadi Party to unseat the Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government seems not to have translated into reality, if we go by exit polls on Monday that screamed that the BJP will return to power albeit with a lower tally than in 2017.

But a big disclaimer: This is what the exit polls say. For the real deal and who got it right and who read a wave in a ripple, we will have to wait a few more days for counting day Thursday, March 10.

The voteshare seems to be predicted to be firmly behind the BJP with a share as high as 45.4%. Some three exit polls have predicted an easy romp home for the BJP, giving it more than 250 seats. This is lower compared to the 312 seats it won in 2017.

The ETG Research Exit Polls 2022 had BJP winning between 230 and 245 seats, the SP getting 150-165, the BSP 5-10 seats and the Congress getting 2 to 6 seats.

The NewsX-Polstrat exit poll says the BJP will win a maximum 225 seats, enough to form a government of its own. The Samajwadi Party seems to be stuck below 160 and the BSP getting a better 14-24 seats.

The Congress is expected to win between 2 and 6 seats. The Republic- P-MARQ exit polls have put the BJP at 240 seats and the SP at 140.

Again, as TV pundits reiterated, it was the Ram factor which seems to have outweighed the anti-incumbency of the Yogi Adityanath government.

Apart from the BJP’s return in Uttar Pradesh, the Aam Aadmi Party is expected to sweep Punjab. Times Now-Veto exit poll says AAP will win 70 seats, Congress 22 seats, SAD+ 19, BJP+ will have 5 seats, and others will have 1 seat. The Axis My India prediction has AAP winning Punjab with 76-90 seats in Punjab. The state has 117 seats.

Others pegged AAP at 55 (India News-MRC) and between 59-67 (India TV-CVoter) and AAP at 54 seats (News 24-Today’s Chanakya). The ABP-Lokniti CSDS exit poll put AAP to get 36-46 seats. The last two projections point to a hung Assembly in Punjab.

In Goa, the Congress seems to be ahead though by a slim margin. Zee News poll said it expected the BJP to win 15 seats. And the Congress+ is likely to get more than 16 seats and others will get 7 seats. The numbers though close leave room for MLA-hopping if push comes to a shove.

In Manipur, the BJP is likely to get re-elected under N. Biren Singh with 33-37 seats.  The Congress may get 12-17 seats.

The Uttarakhand projections are mixed. With a few polls making it a clean BJP majority, some others credit a Congress return.

Again, these are exit poll projections. March 10 will show who is right and who is not!

Following the incident, the DGCA issued a show cause notice to the responsible manager of the airlines and directed them to take enforcement actions against Go First for the dereliction of their regulatory obligations.

Replying to the DGCA, the airline released a statement saying the airline had launched an inquiry into the matter assuring it is being investigated. The airlines also offered a free ticket for travel on any domestic route to all the affected passengers.

A senior DCGA official reacted to the reply and said the airline failed to provide adequate ground arrangement handling, flight dispatch and passenger and cargo handling, and preparation of load and trim sheet.

DGCA further enforced action and penalised Rs 10 lakh for violation of CAR Sections 3, Series C, Part II of the Air Transport Circular 02 of 2019, reports said.

Sharing her inconvenience through a tweet, an affected passenger called it her most horrifying experience with Go First airlines. She shared her ordeals on Twitter and called the incident the heights of negligence.

Watch the video of the incident here:

Earlier a similar incident took place wherein Singapore-bound Scoot Airlines left behind more than 30 passengers at the Amritsar Airport. The DGCA sought a report of the incident and also slammed the airlines.

In a reply to DGCA, the airlines informed that the passengers were updated about the rescheduling of the flight, however, their travel agents failed to convey them. The airlines also offered free tickets to all the affected passengers.

Four men, who crept into a coal mine to allegedly steal scrap iron from the place, died of asphyxiation inside in Shahdol district of Madhya Pradesh, reports said.

According to reports, the now-deceased men broke into a closed coal mine in Kalri under Dhanpuri police station to rob scrap iron by stripping junked machines, while one of their partners stood outside to stand guard.

However, the man standing guard became anxious when his gang members didn’t return for a long time and there was silence from inside. The man fled the spot and fearing the worst, returned back and informed his friends and family of the incident.

Reports said police got wind of the incident, and sent a rescue team inside the mine who managed to pull out the bodies of the four thieves.

Police said that four men were already when the rescue team found them inside the mine.

The deceased have been identified as Raj Mahto, Hazari Koul, Rahul Koul and Kapil Vishwakarma, police said, adding that they suspect the men died due leakage of methane gas inside the coal mine.
