New Delhi, June 3: With the counting of votes for all seven phases of Lok Sabha elections scheduled for Tuesday, anticipation is mounting to see if the Exit Poll projections align with reality. 

Many pollsters have forecast a third consecutive term for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, making it a focal point of discussions. 

Should he secure another term, Prime Minister Modi stands poised to match the historical feat of former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, who remains the only leader to get elected as PM for three straight terms.

The Exit Polls have predicted a strong show by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and a setback for the opposition's INDIA bloc in the Lok Sabha elections.

Roughly seven Exit Polls have projected approximately 350-370 seats for the BJP-led NDA in the 543-member Lok Sabha. They also indicated that the INDIA bloc might end up with around 107-140 seats, falling significantly short of the majority mark of 272 seats.

Three Exit Polls -- India Today-My Axis India, India TV-CNX, and News24-Todays Chanakya -- forecast that the NDA would secure over 400 seats. 

Many other Exit Polls indicated a significant victory for the BJP in Congress-ruled Karnataka, while the India TV-CNX poll suggested that the Chandrababu Naidu-led TDP and the NDA are poised to sweep the polls in Andhra Pradesh.

The Exit Poll findings were released on Saturday evening, immediately after the conclusion of the seventh and final phase of polling.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP have expressed confidence that the party-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will achieve a historic victory by securing more than 400 seats in the Lok Sabha. 

Meanwhile, the Congress is claiming that the INDIA bloc, a coalition of over 25 opposition parties, is poised to secure victory in the elections with more than 295 seats. 

The opposition parties have instructed their counting agents to closely oversee the vote-counting process on Tuesday, emphasising the importance of obtaining Form 17C, which includes the tally of votes registered at each polling station.

Also on Tuesday, the counting of votes for the Assembly polls in Andhra Pradesh and Odisha, along with by-elections to different Assembly constituencies, will be taken up. 

The counting process is scheduled to commence at 8 a.m., and continue till the final tallies are prepared. 

The general elections were held in seven phases from April 19 to June 1.
