“Remember Bihar?” Reacts Rahul Gandhi to UP Exit Poll Results

Faced with questions over the exit poll results, which project a bad showing for the Samajwadi Party-Congress alliance in Uttar Pradesh, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Friday retaliated by reminding the doubters of the exit poll results in Bihar.

Do you remember the exit poll results from Bihar? We have seen such predictions before as well. Our alliance is winning. We will talk tomorrow.

Giving examples of how the pollsters' predictions were wrong during Bihar Assembly elections, he stressed that this time also, the same thing would happen.

We will win in Uttar Pradesh. Exit polls projections in Bihar were wrong. We will talk on 11 March.

Most of the exit polls on Thursday gave the BJP a clear lead over other parties in the state, with one of them predicting 285 seats for the saffron party.

"I'm not giving any opinion on the opinion polls," Gandhi said.

During 2015 Bihar Assembly elections, most exit polls had predicted a BJP victory. However, the Grand Alliance of the JD(U), the RJD and the Congress had swept the state.

The Congress, which has joined hands with the SP, is hopeful of making a comeback in Uttar Pradesh.
