Exit polls say BJP winning in Uttar Pradesh, Rahul Gandhi rejects prediction

Rahul Gandhi has chosen to dismiss the prediction forecasting BJP's win in Uttar Pradesh and have asked people to wait for March 11

Dismissing a number of exit polls prediction, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi has said that the alliance form with the Samajwadi Party is winning and that we will talk on the election day. Rejecting the exit polls that predicts Bharatiya Janata Party’s win in Uttar Pradesh, Gandhi affirmed that he had seen such exit polls in Bihar as well.

With the final phase of polling for the crucial Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections ending on March 8, the focus of the voters and the general public shifted to the various exit polls conducted by media houses. In what may come as a shocker to UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and Rahul Gandhi, the News X-MRC exit poll gave the BJP a total number of 185 seats in the 403-seat House, 120 seats for the SP-Congress alliance and 90 seats to the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP).


Meanwhile, Akhilesh Yadav supporter, Ram Gopal Yadav claimed that the original exit polls had been changed after being pressurised by the several media houses.

After a high-voltage election campaign in the state of Uttar Pradesh, people across the country have now set their eyes on March 11 for the final counting to commence. What made the UP election more electric was the Prime Minister personal involvement in the campaigning and the unprecedented alliance formed by the Congress and the Samajwadi Party where Akhilesh and Rahul were seen campaigning together to woo the voters.

The final verdict will be announced on March 11.
