NDTV journalist Ravish Kumar has a prolonged meltdown on his show after the Exit Polls predicted a landslide BJP victory

Ravish Kumar has been saying outlandish things for quite some time now. Recently, he had said that media should not be talking about the India-Pakistan conflict because it helps BJP in elections. 

Last evening as the numbers from various exit polls started to pour in, assorted liberals started having a mental collapse after it became evidently clear that PM Narendra Modi is once again going to preside over as the Prime Minister of the country.

However, one of the prominent self-proclaimed liberalists, Ravish Kumar, who was seen on stage at an SP-BSP rally, had a prolonged meltdown upon the realisation that his efforts to oust the BJP from power have gone in vain as the saffron party is poised to return back at the centre with a thumping majority. Kumar felt the ground slipping under his feet as almost all exit polls predicted a rout for the Congress party.

Unsurprisingly, instead of introspecting what went wrong for the Congress party or which factors helped BJP to secure such an unassailable lead, dejected Ravish was quick to repudiate the data from the exit polls claiming that the media channels have worked hard to market BJP and PM Modi and that some anchors and owners deserve to be inducted in the cabinet for their services. Ravish’s faith in the Election Commission which had cemented during the assembly elections in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh a few months back instantly vanished as he insinuated them of being partisan in favour of the BJP.

After trying to discredit the news agencies who conducted the exit polls, Ravish went ahead to demolish the credibility of the elaborate procedures entailing exit polls. One of the panellists, Revati Laul pushed a conjectural theory that the entire process of soliciting information about one’s voted candidate is flawed as people would be naturally worried and anxious to reveal their choice of candidate in order to avoid retribution from the political parties. She postulated that accounting such data would invariably yield skewed results.

This theory is absolutely trash and it doesn’t hold water as the exit polls are not conducted willy-nilly but with a set of specific objectives and with the utmost integrity. The argument that the entire process of seeking information for exit polls is flawed may serve as cold comfort for those whose lives have been completely upended after the exit poll results prophesied an imminent BJP victory.

It is notable to mention that the pliant media which was believing their preferred political leader Rahul Gandhi’s claim that he has dismantled PM Modi and was expecting Congress upsurge in the elections are now holding everyone else accountable and casting smear on other media houses and the Election Commission so that their supreme leader’s incompetence can be concealed. Ravish Kumar has been saying outlandish things for quite some time now. Recently, he had said that media should not be talking about the India-Pakistan conflict because it helps BJP in elections.
