Gujarat Congress rejects exit pollsMay 20, 2019
Vadodara: Gujarat Congress president Amit Chavda and former president and ex-union minister Bharatsinh Solanki today claimed that all the exit polls predicting BJP led NDA’s victory in the general elections, would prove to be wrong on the counting day and Congress lead UPA would form the next government.
Both the leaders were here to participate in the mourning meeting of deceased Congress councilor Jitendra Thakor here.
Talking to newsmen Chavda said that that all the exit polls would prove to be wrong and Congress would form the next government with majority. He also claimed that contrary to the exit polls predictions, Congress would win more than 10 of the total 26 seats in Gujarat. He also alleged that the BJP government in the state has failed in adequate supply of water and fodder in the drought hit areas. The congress party was doing a survey in this regard and if the situation did not improve, it would launch agitation in the coming days on the issue.
Solanki, who is also the party candidate on Anand LS seat, also claimed that the exit polls would prove to be wrong and Congress would form majority government at center. ‘Congress would win more than 14 seats in Gujarat. The exit polls would fail as had happened during Atal Bihari government. BJP government had failed miserably on all the fronts in last five years and people have voted against it,’ he said.
