Contrasting views were voiced by political parties in the state on the results of various exit polls for 2019 Lok Sabha elections that predicted the return of the NDA government at the centre.
Addressing a press conference in Rajiv Bhawan, Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) member Durga Das Boro straightly said that these exit polls are unbelievable. The numbers will give fodder to the media for next two days. We will wait for the real poll results that will be out on May 23.
According to him, the Congress party will sweep the Lok Sabha elections with a huge margin.
Congress said that these polls seem to have been designed to promote the Modi government, while the BJP said the these polls only reflected what opinion polls had already said.
BJP leader Himanta Biswa Sarma confidently said that the NDA would win over half the state’s seats. The exit polls show the people’s support to Modi and BJP. According to state BJP, the NDA will cross the half-way mark out of the 542 Lok Sabha seats.
