As the Election Commission counts votes of assembly elections to five states on Saturday, some trends are clear: Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is on course for a landslide victory in Uttar Pradesh, India’s most important battleground state. The Congress, meanwhile, is set to return to power in Punjab. Here are the highlights from the vote counting:
•The BJP is leading in or has won 310 of 403 seats in Uttar Pradesh, much higher than the 202 seats it needs to form a government on its own. The BJP has more than doubled its vote share in the state to close to 40% since the last assembly elections, though it has dropped slightly from the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
