LS polls: Karnataka's Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar says exit poll predictions showing NDA marching ahead in state will go wrong

Karnataka's Deputy Chief Minister and top Congress leader DK Shivakumar has said the exit poll results predicitng the Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA winning more seats would be proven wrong just like it did during the state Assembly polls last year.

As per exit polls, the Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA is expected to clinch more seats in Karnataka in the Lok Sabha polls

The exit polls predicted the incumbent Bharatiya Janata Party registering a thumping victory in the national polls across the country as well.

"Exit polls had predicted that the Congress party would not come to power during the last Assembly elections, but they were wrong. Exit polls had given only about 80-85 seats to Congress, but I had predicted we would win 136 seats as per the survey we had conducted. We eventually won 136 seats," Shivakumar said while speaking to reporters at his Sadashivanagar residence on Sunday as quoted by ANI.

"I am not confident with whatever the poll predictions have come. In Karnataka, we have performed the best. According to my experience of the last 40 years, there was no Modi wave in Karnataka. BJP is looking at all emotional issues, we are looking at the development of every individual," he said.

The Congress leader said he does not believe in exit polls since they consider the opinion of only a small section of the population.

Speaking on the national scenario, the leader said: "Congress does politics of development while BJP does politics of emotion. I won't comment on the national results, but we will surely cross double digits in Karnataka."

PM Narendra Modi and his BJP is eyeing to return to power for the third straight term.
