Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in his first reaction in the wake of the unveiling of exit polls 2017 on the Assembly election results in 5 states of Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Manipur and Goa says that they are wrong. All the polls have predicted a huge majority for the PM Narendra Modi and Amit Shah led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) especially in UP, Uttarakhand and to an extent in Goa too, but the Congress leader said that these are generally proven wrong. However, most polls have also forecast a probable win for Congress under Capt Amarinder Singh, but the party is neck and neck with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) while the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP alliance is set to be trounced. While addressing the media today, Rahul Gandhi said, “Our alliance is winning, such exit polls we saw in Bihar also. Will talk tomorrow.”
