New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: A day after the exit polls predicted a thumping victory for the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the Delhi, the Congress said that any possibility of an alliance with the AAP depended on the result of the Assembly Election in the national capital, adding that the survey are ‘not correct’.

 

“It depends on the results. Once results are out then only we can discuss it, I think the surveys are not correct. Congress is likely to do better than what surveys predict,” Congress’ PC Chacko, quoted by news agency ANI, said.

 

“If the poll prediction can be perfect then we don't need an election. We have faced such exit polls in Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand. I am not denying that these conclusions may not be always right but I feel that this exit poll may not be very correct. Congress is likely to do better than what these surveys are saying. I am not saying that we will get a majority but our position may be better,” he added.

Meanwhile, Congress spokesperson Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury praised Arvind Kejriwal, saying that if the AAP wins the election, then it would be a victory of its ‘developmental agendas’.

 

“We fought this election with all our strength. In this election, BJP put forth all the communal agendas and Arvind Kejriwal Ji put forth developmental agendas. If Kejriwal wins, then it will be a victory of the developmental agendas,” Chowdhury, quoted by ANI, said.

 

The exit polls, which were broadcast on Saturday, predicted that the AAP will likely emerge victorious in the assembly elections in the national capital with some of them even predicting that the party can even repeat its 2015 landslide when it had bagged 67 seats in the 70-member House.

The exit polls also predicted that the BJP would be distant second in the elections while the congress might once again struggle to open its account.

 

The Congress and the AAP had formed an alliance in 2013 to form the government in Delhi. The two, however, separated their ways after 49 days, leading to President’s Rule in the national capital.
