Rahul Gandhi rubbishes exit poll predictions, says such forecasts were seen in Bihar too

With various exit polls showing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leading in assembly elections held recenly in four of the five states, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Friday said such predictions are nonsensical and pointed to the 2015 Bihar elections’ exit polls to back his view.

“Our alliance is winning and such exit polls we saw in Bihar also. We will talk about it tomorrow when the results will be declared,” Gandhi said.

Earlier in the day, Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Ram Gopal Yadav dubbed the prediction as nonsensical and added that they have been changed under pressure. “These exit polls are nonsensical. I have information that the original exit polls were changed under pressure by channels few days back,” Ram Gopal Yadav said.

Yadav further expressed confidence over winning the assembly polls. Pollsters have predicted the BJP as the largest party in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur while a setback for SAD- BJP alliance in Punjab. As voting wraps up in five states – Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Goa, Manipur and Uttarakhand, the results will be declared on March 11.
