India TV-CNX Exit Poll 2019 has revealed that Biju Janata Dal (BJD) is likely to retain power in Odisha, the state which was recently battered by Cyclone 

Fani. Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik is likely to serve another term as Chief Minister of Odisha.

 

India TV-CNX Exit Poll 2019 says that BJP is likely to win 90-100 seats in Odisha Assembly. Polling for assembly was held simultaneously with that of Lok 

Sabha 2019.

 

In 2014 assembly elections, BJD had won 114 seats in the state. The tally may decrease a bit this time around but BJD will emerge as the single largest party 

in Odisha Assembly and will be able to form government with a comfortable margin.

 

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is likely to make big gains this time in Odisha Assembly. In 2014, BJP had only 10 MLAs in Odisha Assembly. However, India 

TV-CNX Exit Poll predicts that BJP will secure victory on 35 to 41 assembly seats.

 

BJD will have upper hand in Lok Sabha Elections 2019 in Odisha. India TV-NCX Exit Poll says that BJD will win 15 out of 21 seats in Odisha. In 2014 Lok 

Sabha Elections, BJD had won 20 seats. BJP's tally is likely to increase from 1 to 6. Congress will draw a blank. BJP's vote share is likely to see an increase of 

10.53 per cent.
