Leave MP exit polls, Congress will rule, says Digvijaya Singhtext_fields
Bhopal: In Madhya Pradesh, Congress is confident it will form government next, suggesting that exit polls are far from reality.
Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh said on Friday, "Exit poll results are very diverse. We cannot say anything about it. I can assure you that the Congress will get more than 130 seats and a clear majority in Madhya Pradesh," Singh said.
Addressing reporters at the state capital, Singh said that the people had been fed up with the corrupt BJP government for the last two decades, and he was sure that they had voted for a change.
"People want transformation for which Congress will get votes. People are fed up with Shivraj Singh Chouhan and his fake promises," he added.
On Thursday, after the exit polls came out, Madhya Pradesh Congress president Kamal Nath asserted that the party will come to power with an absolute majority in the state.
"The country is run by vision, not by television. Many exit polls have shown the Congress party forming the government, while some exit polls are saying otherwise. You don't want to let all this distract you," Kamal Nath said in a social media post.
The exit polls gave varied predictions in the poll-bound states, giving an advantage to the BJP in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, a clear edge to Congress in Chhattisgarh and Telangana, and the ruling MNF was ahead in power sweepstakes in Mizoram.
Most of the exit polls gave an edge to the Congress in Telangana, where polling concluded on Thursday, a few predicted a close contest in Rajasthan with Congress in the lead, and an exit poll gave an edge to the party in Madhya Pradesh, too. A poll predicted that the Zoram People's Movement would win decisively in Mizoram.
