'Time to switch off TV': How politicians reacted to exit polls 2019
5/19/2019 8:36:56 PM

New Delhi
Expressing disappointment over the exit poll, National Conference leader and former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah said, "Time to switch off the TV, log out of social media".

“Every single exit poll can’t be wrong! Time to switch off the TV, log out of social media & wait to see if the world is still spinning on its axis on the 23rd, " the leader tweeted.

Trinamool Congress leader Derek O'Brien showed little reliance over the exit poll predictions and said he would wait for the verdict on the result day.

"Have 'Delhi media’ who masquerade as ‘national media’ lost their credentials and credibility? So-called Exit Polls will only confuse. We await the verdict of the people. Modi ji had called the number 300+ even before Phase 7. Are these numbers to match that? EVM manipulation?, " he tweeted.

Dubbing exit polls as "gossip", West Bengal Chief Minister and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee said she doesn't trust such surveys, as the "game plan" is to use them for "manipulation" of EVMs.

"I don't trust Exit Poll gossip. The game plan is to manipulate or replace thousands of EVMs through this gossip. I appeal to all Opposition parties to be united, strong and bold. We will fight this battle together," Banerjee said in a tweet.

BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain targetted the Congress president Rahul Gandhi saying he was looking for excuses even before the results were announced.

"Even before the #ExitPoll2019 is out, Rahul Gandhi has started attacking the #ElectionCommission . He knows that Congress is going to give a dismal performance in #LokSabhaElections2019 , just like 2014 & is desperately looking for excuses, ".

The marathon seven-phased Lok Sabha polls concluded on Sunday, and shortly after that, exit polls are predicting that Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA is coming back to power at the Centre with close to 300 seats.

While the Times Now-VMR exit poll says the BJP-led NDA will win 306 of the 542 seats and the UPA will settle at 132, Republic C-Voter says the NDA will win 287 seats and UPA 128. Others, which include regional parties, will get 120 seats according to Times Now-VMR and 87 according to Republic C-Voter survey.

The News18-IPSOS survey predicts Prime Minister Narendra Modi's return with 300 plus seats for NDA.

Times Now-VMR survey predicted that the BJP would emerge as the single largest party winning 262 seats, after the end of mammoth seven-phase polling for the 542 of the 543 parliamentary constituencies. The BJP, on its own, may fall short of majority by nine seats.

The results will be announced on May 23 and the new government will be formed next week.
