"Gujarat public has preferred politics of development, and development was brought in by Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi and the BJP", he added.

A poll of exit polls, an aggregate of 10 exit polls conducted in Gujarat, have predicted a clear majority for the BJP with 116 seats in the 182-seat assembly.

Ahead of the counting of votes in the Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh elections which were overshadowed by the Congress and others questioning the EVMs, Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) AK Joti today sought to assure the politicians and the voters by claiming the voting machines can not be tampered with.

However, it seems the BJP will have to settle for less than 120 seats, which they have got in 2012 Assembly election. The polling was held at two booths each in Vadgam and Savli constituencies and one each in Viramgam and Daskroi.

"I bow to the people of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh for their affection and trust in BJP. I assure that EVMS can not be tampered with".
