Exit polls from India's marathon election showed an "overwhelming" vote in favour of a new term for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, his party said on Monday as shares and the Indian currency surged on expectations of a new term.

Counting of votes recorded in hundreds of thousands of computerized machines will begin early on Thursday and results are expected by noon.

Yadav, on being asked about his view on the exit polls which are giving a clear majority to BJP-led NDA at the Centre, said: "Exit polls have no value".

In the last general election, the satta market placed bets on the NDA to win, but it did not expect the BJP to win half the seats.

While the election since 11 April has been largely peaceful, West Bengal in eastern India is an exception. "No media or personnel will be allowed in the vicinity of the cave", reports news agency ANI.

Banerjee denied the accusation and said Modi's government used security forces to intimidate her party's supporters.

Besides, Naidu also noted the dissent expressed by Election Commissioner Ashok Lavasa over clean chits given to Modi and BJP president Amit Shah over allegations of poll code violations.

"People are divided for many reasons. Things are not predictable like before", he said. Modi's party backed a bill that would make it easier to deport millions of Bangladeshis who have migrated to India since Bangladesh's independence in 1971. The bill, however, eases the path to citizenship for Hindus, Sikhs, Parsees and Jains - non-Muslims - who have come from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan over decades.

Many also see this election as a battle for India's identity and the state of its minorities. "There were long queues of people waiting patiently to cast their votes, which is a good sign for democracy".

And national security is in the spotlight after a suicide attack by a Pakistan-based militant group killed at least 40 paramilitary police in Indian-administered Kashmir in February.

This prediction comes despite its projection that the party would lose heavily in the bellwether state of Uttar Pradesh, which sends 80 MPs to parliament, more than any other. The satta market is also betting on other parties winning a majority or the BJP not getting enough seats to form a majority.

A Congress-led government would require a major electoral upset.
