Samajwadi Party will emerge as the single largest party in Uttar Pradesh, according to a joint exit poll conducted by Star News and Nielson.

The findings of the exit poll were declared after the seventh and last phase of the much-hyped state election on Saturday.

The poll claims that SP will get 183 seats, just 19 short of the 202 needed to get a simple majority in the 403-member assembly. In 2007, the SP won only 97 seats.

The BSP will secure 24 per cent of the total votes, down from 30.5 per cent during the last assembly polls.
