Congress dismisses Kerala exit poll results
Thiruvananthapuram, May 17: The Congress on Monday dismissed an exit polls showing the party-led United Democratic Front losing power in Kerala to its rival, the CPI-M-led Left Democratic Front.
Senior Congress legislator Benny Behanan, who did not get a party ticket this time, told media persons that the results that have come out in the exit polls are not true.
"I represent a seat in Ernakulam and I know this district very well and this survey says the UDF will win just three seats... this is just not right. Something has gone wrong with those who did this," he said.
Veteran Bharatiya Janata Party leader O.Rajagopal, who is a contestant from the Thiruvananthapuram district, said even though the exit polls predicts three seats for his party, they are expecting more.
"So let's wait for the result to come out on May 19," he said.
Communist Party of India-Marxist Lok Sabha member M.P.Rajesh however said he did not find the results as a surprise as this was what they expected.
