Reacting to exit poll results, Mamata Banerjee tweeted, “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.”
“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,” tweeted NC leader and former Jammu and Kashmir CM Omar Abdullah.
In 2014 Lok Sabha elections, the NDA had registered a thumping victory by clinching 336 seats, with BJP alone winning 282 seats on its own. However, the UPA had suffered humiliating defeat as it had bagged only 60 seats.
