People react after a roller coaster counting sees BJP notching victories in Gujarat and Himachal

Monday evening saw the end of a long, arduous, exhilarating and an amply controversial election season where the BJP emerged victorious in both Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.

Based on latest election commission data, the BJP is confirmed to have crossed the majority mark after winning 96 seats and are leading on 3 others. In Himachal the BJP swept the polls after winning 34 as per latest data and leading on 10 others.
