Kolkata, May 17 : Refuting the claims by the exit polls, which predicted a victory for Trinamool Congress in West Bengal assembly elections, CPI(M) state Secretary Suryakanto Mishra today expressed confidence that the CPI(M) and Congress alliance would come to power. “What the people are thinking that can neither come up nor can be projected in those surveys (exit poll). I would request you all to wait for a while as the people will give their verdict on May 19 against this autocratic government,” Mishra said at a programme here.

“The victory of people’s alliance against the autocratic regime is certain,” the former West Bengal minister added. Most of the exit poll surveys by regional and national channels have given TMC a clear majority in the 294-member Assembly. “I am getting many calls from various places. I would request you all not to get tensed. We have lots of work to do. The distribution of responsibilities among the cadre on the counting day is an important task which needs to be fulfilled properly,” Mishra said.
