Rejecting the results of the exit polls, Rahul Gandhi on Friday said that the SP-Cong alliance will emerge victorious in the UP Assembly elections 2017. “SP- Cong alliance will win in UP. Exit polls can be wrong,” the Congress leader was quoted as saying to a television channel.
“Look what happened in the case of Bihar? These results do not always reflect the true situation. We will talk on March 11” he said.
Almost all the exit poll results have put BJP in the top with maximum number of seats. Most of them have predicted that BJP will win over 180 seats; some going as far as 210. According to India News, the SP- Cong alliance is expected to win 120 seats, while ABP News puts the number at 156-169.
Counting for the UP Assembly election 2017 is scheduled on March 11. Apart from UP, Punjab, Goa and Manipur, too, have gone to polls this year.
