A pre-poll survey today projected Naredra Modi-led BJP sweeping Gujarat, Rajasthan and Karnataka and the party-led NDA giving a big jolt to ruling Congress-NCP alliance in Maharashtra in the Lok Sabha elections.
The NDTV-Hansa Research survey, which released the electoral projections of 319 seats in 12 states today, says AIADMK is projected to win 27 out of 39 Lok Sabha seats. It has predicted only 10 seats for DMK.
The survey predicted BJP-Shiv Sena alliance is likely to win 33 seats out of 48 seats while Congress' tally is projected to come down to 12 -- a loss of 13 Lok Sabha seats from the 2009 position.
It also says Raj Thackarey's MNS is likely to win one seat in the Lok Sabha polls.
The poll projects 23 seats to BJP in Gujarat's 26 Lok Sabha constituencies and 21 seats in Karnataka (out of total 28 seats) by staging a comeback from the poor show in last year's assembly polls there.
According to the survey, BJP-LJP alliance in Bihar is likely to win 23 seats of 40 Lok Sabha seats. While the survey gives 11 seats to Congress-RJD alliance, ruling JD(U) is projected to win just 5 Lok Sabha seats.
The survey also predicted emergence of Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi after its stunning show in assembly polls. According to it, the Arvind Kejriwal led party is likely to win four of the seven seats in Delhi, BJP 2 and Congress one.
The survey says 42% of Indians backed Narendra Modi as the leading choice for the next Prime Minister.
Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi emerged as the second choice with support of 27% of people.
