Opinion polls will be proven wrong: RPN Singh
Minister of State for Home and Congress candidate RPN Singh on Monday said opinion polls will be proven wrong on the counting day on May 16.
"All opinion polls by the media will be proven wrong this time as they were earlier in 2004 and 2009. That time, the media said we will get very low numbers. But they were proven wrong," said the Congress candidate from Kushinagar in Uttar Pradesh.
A staggered nine-phase general elections in India to elect a new government in New Delhi reached its final phase on Monday as people in three states are voting in 41 constituencies to seal the fates of 606 candidates, including bigwigs like Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal who are pitted against each other in the holy city of Varanasi.
Polling is being held in 41 seats across West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar with the spotlight in Varanasi owing to the contest of two heavyweights while Bengal hogged the limelight for violence. About 9 crore people are eligible to vote in this round.
