The Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance is poised to cross 220 seats, well ahead of the United Progressive Alliance and within striking distance of forming a government in 2014 if elections are held today.

The big national projection of the CNN-IBN Lokniti election tracker conducted by the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies.

The Congress could be heading for its worst ever performance – with the UPA unlikely to cross 125 seats, according to the poll.

Regional parties such as the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress and Jayalalithaa-led All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam could still be the key to government formation.
