AMARAVATI: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu on Sunday said that Exit polls have failed to catch people’s pulse.
“Time and again exit polls have failed to catch the People's pulse. Exit polls have proved to be incorrect and far from ground reality in many instances. While undoubtedly TDP govt will be formed in AP, we are confident that non-BJP parties will form a non-BJP govt at the centre”, Naidu tweeted.
“We reiterate our demand to the ECI to count VVPATs in at least 50 per cent of polling stations. VVPATs should be counted in 5 polling stations in each Assembly Constituency at the beginning of counting process. In case of discrepancy, all VVPATs of Assembly Constituency shall be counted”, he added.
