The high-octave Assembly elections across five states have come to an end and the exit polls have been released. The polls have declared that BJP will win with a clear majority in Uttar Pradesh and AAP will surprisingly win in Punjab.
In states such as Uttarakhand and Goa, the polls have predicted a neck-to-neck fight between BJP and Congress and the saffron camp is expected to make a clean sweep. The votes will be counted on March 10.
Many have outrightly dismissed the exit polls. They are claiming that more often they go wrong and analysts and political leaders delivered their predictions.
Activist and the co-founder of AAP Yogendra Yadav took to Twitter to congratulate Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.
“The only firm conclusion that we can draw from exit polls so far is about Punjab. Clearly, it’s an AAP wave with a thumping majority. Congratulations to @AamAadmiParty and @ArvindKejriwal Really hope they live up to the huge expectations of the people of Punjab,” Yadav said.
BJP leader Amit Malviya also came forward and said, “For the first time in 37 years, since 1985, BJP would be the only party to get re-elected. Irrespective of seats, it would be phenomenal.”
The general secretary of the Samajwadi Party (SP) Ram Gopal Yadav rejected the exit polls and said it is ‘monitored’.
“@yadavakhilesh @samajwadiparty exit polls are monitored. Samajwadi alliance is winning more than 300 seats. Candidates and party workers should ensure that the counting of votes is done with due diligence. Get ready to wave the victory flag on March 10,” he said.
SP chief Akhilesh Yadav said the results on March 10 will declare wiping out of BJP from the state. “Let them show whatever they have got. We are winning with a majority,” he said.
On Punjab elections, chief minister Charanjit Singh Channi said, “Only boxes (EVMs) will tell what has to happen. All of you, please wait till March 10.”
