"Different exit polls have come but they are not exact polls. In less than 24 hours, we will know the exact poll. We should wait for it," Union Minister and senior BJP leader Parkash Javadekar told reporters.

Counting of votes in the high-stakes close-to-call Bihar Assembly elections, billed as a hot battle between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, will take place tomorrow. The counting for the 243 seats of the assembly will begin at 8 AM and the verdict for a majority of seats is expected by the early afternoon.

Most of the exit polls have predicted a close contest between the BJP-led NDA and the grand alliance of JD(U)-RJD-Congress with a slight edge to the Chief Minister Nitish Kumar-led grouping.

Referring to the win of some of the BJP candidates in Kerela civic polls, Javadekar said that the politics in the state is changing and BJP has become an important factor in it even as he expressed confidence of performing much better in the forthcoming Assembly elections.

"We were absolute zero but our numbers have swelled to a very recognizable figure. This is the indication of shape of things which is coming in Kerela. Kerela politics is changing forever and BJP will become an important factor," he said.
