Exit polls based on personal interviews & EVMs have no rule: Jaitley

news

Senior BJP leader and Union Minister Arun Jaitley today attacked exit poll doubters saying when multiple exit polls convey the same message, the direction of the result broadly will be in consonance with the message.

In a blog, Mr Jaitley said the exit polls are based on personal interviews and the EVMs have no role. He added that the opposition’s fake issue of the EVMs would also lose its non-existent rationale if the results of the exit polls and final results on Thursday are in the same direction.

Mr. Jaitley also said that if the exit polls are read alongwith the 2014 election results, it will be clear that there is a huge maturing of Indian democracy taking place and the electorate keeps national interest paramount before exercising a choice on whom to vote for.

The Minister said the maturing of democracy is visible from the messages that dynastic parties, caste parties and the Obstructionists Left received a setback in 2014. This will be reiterated, loud and clear, in 2019, he said. (AIR NEWS)
