Union Minister Nitin Gadkari on Monday said the exit polls are not the final decision but indicate that the NDA will once again come to power riding on the good work done by the Narendra Modi-led government.

Exit poll results are not final. They are only an indicator. The results will come on May 23. But results are, by and large, in tune with exit poll outcome… (and) all polls indicate that the NDA government is returning to power under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said.

The senior BJP leader was speaking at the launch of a poster of PM Narendra Modi , a biopic on the Prime Minister, which will be released on May 24, a day after the counting of votes cast in the Lok Sabha elections. Actor Vivek Oberoi, who is playing the lead role, and film producer Sandip S Singh were also present on the occasion.

Originally scheduled to be released on April 5, the Election Commission had stayed the release of the biopic on April 10 after several opposition parties had complained to judicial authorities and the poll body, claiming that the film was a propaganda vehicle for the ruling BJP.

Calling the film a very motivational one, Gadkari said: I am sure it (the film) will inspire the young generation. Modi ji has raised India s prestige in the world and has delivered corruption-free five years of rule.

Oberoi told reporters that after a lot of opposition from some people, the film will now be screened across 40 countries simultaneously on May 24. It s a film on a great leader, he said.
