The BJP seems to have taken the exit polls as being the final result in this year's Lok Sabha election and has already started celebrating its 'victory'. The Mumbai North constituency, where BJP MP Gopal Shetty had won with the highest margin of votes during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, saw a majority voter turnout this time, too.

The constituency saw a contest between Shetty and actor Urmila Matondkar. As part of the celebration, three community trusts in the North constituency have come together to contribute towards 3,000 kg of sweets that will be distributed on Thursday.

A BJP worker, not willing to be named, said, "We had initially planned 1,500 kg of sweets, but after seeing the Exit Poll results, we increased the quantity."
