‘We reject exit polls…Ham jeet rahe hain,’ says Tejashwi Yadav
Tejashwi heads the opposition Grand Alliance in Bihar
PATNA: Bihar opposition leader and RJD lawmaker Tejashwi Yadav on Monday rejected the exit polls predicting absolute majority for Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA in the country.
“We reject the exit polls. Ham jeet rahe hain (we are wining),” Tejashwi tweeted on Monday, asking the masses to keep a close watch on strong rooms (where EVMs have been stored afetr voting) and prevent the “dirty” game.
All exit polls have predicted comfortable win for the BJP-led NDA with one of them even giving 365 out of total 543 seats where polling was held.
Not only that, they have even predicted a clean sweep for NDA in Bihar with a total of 40 LS seats. One of them, India Today-Axix survey has given 38-40 seats to the NDA out of total 40.
Similar predictions have been made by most of the exit polls. Republic-C Voter survey has given 33 seats, Times Now-VMR has given 30, Republic-Jan Ki Baat has given 28-31 seats, India TV-CNX has given 32, ABP-AC Neilson has given 34 while News24-Chanakya has given 32 seats to the NDA.
If the exit polls prove true, it will be a major setback for the Opposition parties which stitched a mega Grand Alliance with the RJD, Congress, Rahtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP), Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM), Vikassheel Insan Party (VIP) and Communist Party of India-Marxist-Leninist.
