In Maharashtra, the ABP-CVoter survey revealed a comfortable win and a second term for the BJP-Sena combine under CM Devendra Fadnavis despite an anti-incumbency trend. The BJP-Sena were predicted to bag between 182 and 206 seats while the Congress-NCP alliance was only expected to win between 72 and 98 seats, as per the opinion poll conducted earlier.
