Responding to Exit Polls that have predicted a majority to Bharatiya Janata Party, the opposition Congress dumped the Exit polls saying that actual results will be very different what projected by the Most of the Exit Polls. Speaking to Reporters, Congress Spokesperson Rajeev Gowda said that the May 23 results will surprise you.
‘Please wait till May 23, we will surprise you. The entire vote share to seat share conversion is a difficult job. There is also a fear psychosis in the country and people do not reveal their views’ said Gowda as quoted by Times Now.
While Congress Leader and Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh rubbished the prediction of Exit Polls. Punjab Chief Minister said, ‘I am confident that Congress would do much better in these Lok Sabha Polls, Especially in Punjab, the party will win 9-10 Lok Sabha Seats in the state’, told Punjab Chief Minister.
Congress is not the only who is rubbishing the Exit Polls, TMC Supremo and West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee also raised questions on the accuracy of the Exit Polls. ‘I don’t trust Exit Poll gossip. The game plan is to manipulate or replace thousands of EVMs through this gossip. I appeal to all Opposition parties to be united, strong and bold. We will fight this battle together’, tweeted Trinamool Congress Supremo Mamata Banerjee on Sunday.

If your exit poll doesn’t have a 🚁 flying around the studio you’ve already lost the battle for the viewers attention.

After two months of high decibel campaign and hectic seven phases of polling on 543 seats, almost all exit polls on Sunday predicted Prime Minister Narendra Modi to return in power.
Most of the exit polls predicted a clear Majority to Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) with above 300 seats. Polls predicted party’s landslide victory in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan and Uttarakhand among others.
