Rashid Alvi says 'opinion polls mislead people'

New Delhi, Nov.3 : Congress leader Rashid Alvi on Sunday said that his party has only supported the decision of the Election Commission (EC) to restrict opinion polls, and added that opinion polls create delusion and misleads people.

"Restriction of opinion poll is a decision of the Election Commission (EC), and we have only supported it. Opinion polls show varied results and it creates delusion and misleads people. All the parties should come together and look into this matter," he said.

The Congress Party has written to the Election Commission (EC) to restrict opinion polls ahead of the elections.

The legal department of the Congress Party stated that opinion polls can be misused, and they are not scientific or credible.

The Congress, however, shifted from its earlier stand, where it dismissed the proposal of the Election Commission to ban opinion polls.

The opinion polls have been projecting poor show of the Congress in some states where Assembly Elections are scheduled to take place.
