Exit poll results leave opposition guessing

Exit polls predicting another term for Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, has sent alarm bells ringing within the camp of the opposition parties across the country.
Most of the opposition leaders are telling the people that they should not believe the exit polls and wait for 23 May, when actual results would be announced. The results of the exit polls have disturbed the leaders of the opposition party so much that they termed these as “manipulated” and “exaggerated.”
Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir and National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah after watching the exit poll results tweeted that all the results cannot be wrong. However, West Bengal Chief Minister, Mamta Banerjee, termed exit poll results as gossip.
Opposition parties are putting up a brave face but somewhere they know that exit polls most of the times determine the direction. May the number being projected won’t be correct but these could be somewhere near. The opposition’s only hope is that exit polls should go wrong and the non-BJP front which has come together during the past few months gets the numbers which are needed to form the government. Within next three days results would be. But during these three days media will discuss all the possible scenarios but for time being media has delivered its verdict and has declared that Prime Minister Modi is all set to get the next term.
The results of Lok Sabha elections would have a direct impact on J&K’s political scene. The exit polls are predicting two three seats for National Conference, two to three seats for BJP, one seat for Congress and no seat for PDP, which had won all the three parliamentary seats in Kashmir in 2014.
