New Delhi: Swaraj India founder and psephologist Yogendra Yadav has hit out at the Congress saying that “Congress must die” after the exit polls results suggested a victory for the incumbent Bharatiya Janata Party.
Yadav was commenting on India Today’s poll result. India Today has partnered with Axis My India to give the exit poll results. The survey has predicted 339-365 seats for the BJP led National Democratic Alliance and 77-108 for the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance.
Yogendra Yadav has tweeted his reaction:
His tweet raised eyebrows as he said that the age-old party has “no positive role in Indian history”. He clarified his point in the following tweet acknowledging that the party had played a great role immediately after independence.
Congress spokesperson Khushbu Sundar defended the party. She took it to Twitter to comment on Yadav’s remarks:
All exit polls have suggested a big victory for the ruling NDA. The opposition leaders have dismissed the exit poll results. West Bengal CM called the exit polls a "gossip" suggesting it a gameplan to rig electronic voting machines.
But the former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah had a different point of view.
The results of the election would be declared on May 23.
