‘Don’t let exit polls discourage you’, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra to party workers in audio message

The Congress leader Monday, released an audio message, advising her party workers to not fall for "rumours" intended to make them drop their guard ahead of the counting of votes on May 23

Rattled by the exit poll results which forecasted another term for PM Modi with an absolute majority to the NDA coalition, Congress General Secretary in charge of UP East, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has urged her party workers to not to believe in the surveys.

On Monday the Congress leader released an audio message, advising her party workers to not fall for “rumours” intended to make them drop their guard ahead of the counting of votes on May 23.

“My dear Congress workers, sisters and brothers… Don’t let rumours and exit polls discourage you. This is being done just to break your determination. It is very important that you remain alert amid all this. Please continue to keep vigil outside strongrooms and counting centres. We are confident that our combined efforts will bear fruit,” she was heard saying in the audio clip.

The aggregate of exit polls released just after voting concluded on May 19 painted a dim picture of Congress rout in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Most exit polls forecasted that the NDA would sweep over 300 of the country’s 543 parliamentary seats while the Congress and its allies would manage around 120.

This was not well received by many liberals and journalists sympathetic of the Congress party, who jumped into the fray underplaying the predictions made by the Exit Polls and trying to rescue their preferred political party by the dint of obfuscation and deflection.

However, deep down, surrendering to these striking numbers falling in favour of the BJP, the Congress’ mouthpiece National Herald made a striking revelation claiming ‘moral victory’. It said that even if Modi wins the elections, he will emerge ‘weaker’ and ‘diminished’.

Amusingly, the Congress President Rahul Gandhi himself, almost conceding defeat, had already started whining about the EVMs even before the exit poll results were out. The Congress President posted a tweet blaming the Election Commission for the impending defeat of the Congress party.

Moreover, after EVM manipulation and ECI collusion theories, Congress has now come up with another excuse. It is trying to make believe that the people of North India are ‘pliable’ to manipulation because they are uneducated, and hence they have voted for the BJP.

Though Congress has been outwardly disregarding the exit polls and placing their faith in the dubious internal surveys according to which they are winning 160 seats, secretly they have resigned to the fact that Narendra Modi is coming back for another 5 years as the Prime Minister of the country.
