Lok Sabha election result 2019: The Aam Admi Party (AAP) has rejected the exit polls predictions on Uttar Pradesh saying that the alliance SP-BSP-RLD will do much better than the BJP and that the saffron party will be defeated across the country. He also expressed hope that exit polls will prove to be completely false. AAP leader Sanjay Singh expressed his opinion soon after meeting Samajwadi Party president and former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday.

Speaking to reporters, he observed that exit polls predictions will turn out to be completely wrong like it happened before. “I feel the alliance will get more than 60 seats in UP. BJP will be wiped off across the country. Exit polls will prove to be completely false like it had happened before. The opposition will form a strong govt at the centre,” he pointed out.

Singh also said that the priority was to stop PM Narendra Modi and Amit Shah from forming the government again. He further said, “Results will be declared after 2 days. We met to discuss the strategy to be followed after that. The first priority is to stop BJP, pair of Narendra Modi-Amit Shah and communal forces. This was also a courtesy call.”

While Today’s Chanakya and India Today-Axis predicted 65 seats for the BJP in Uttar Pradesh, News 18-IPSOS has predicted 60-62 seats. However, ABP-Nielsen has predicted 45 seats for the alliance and 33 for the BJP in the state. It also gave just 2 seats for the Congress.
