Gujarat Exit Polls Result 2022 LIVE updates: Gujarat is now waiting keenly for the results after voting in the crucial assembly polls in two phases. The second phase of the polling was held on Monday as Prime Minister Narendra Modi, his mother Heeraben Modi, and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, along with his family, were seen casting their votes in their home state. The state has been ruled by the BJP for nearly 27 years and the party is now looking to kick off its seventh term, confident that it will win easy and it will win big.
