Do not go by exit polls, surprise awaits on May 23: Congress
New Delhi : Rubbishing a clear majority for PM Modi's government in the exit polls, the Congress on Sunday said that results on May 23 will surprise the ruling party.
"Please wait till May 23. We will surprise you. The entire vote share to seat share conversion is a difficult job. There is also a fear psychosis in the country and people do not reveal their views," Congress spokesman Rajeev Gowda said.
TMC chief Mamata Banerjee, however, termed the exit polls as mere gossips and said that it is a distraction that is being created to manipulate with EVM machines.
NDTV's poll of polls said the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) would get 296 seats, the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) 128 seats and other parties (Others) 118 seats.
The Today's Chanakya exit poll predicted 340 seats for the Narendra Modi-led NDA and 70 for the Congress-led UPA.
The Republic TV exit poll gave the NDA 305 seats, the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) 124 and others 120. Times Now exit poll gave the BJP alliance 306 seats, the UPA 132 seats and Others 104.
News Nation gave the NDA between 282 to 290 seats, the UPA between 118 and 126 seats and Others 130 to 138 seats. Sudarshan News gave the NDA 313 seats, UPA 121 seats and Others 109+.
