Mamata sees 3 cues in exit polls forecast

Mamata Banerjee has rubbished exit polls forecast saying “they are gossips” and identified three reasons behind Modi’s victory prediction.

The Trinamool leader told the media that the first reason behind such forecast is to fan a gossip and build confidence among people on BJP’s win, our Kolkata correspondent reports.

“Taking advantage of these two factors Narendra Modi is planning to change the results of Electronic Voting Machine (EVM),” she said.

The second reason she identified is to “shatter the confidence of opposition parties” and the third “to stir up the share market and withdraw money from it”.

“If the exit polls predict Modi’s win, the share markets will rise up again and people will invest. Modi plans to withdraw the investment money,” she alleged.

After voting ended, exit polls showed that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to return to power with an even bigger majority in parliament.

Previously, Mamata Banerjee rubbished the exit polls forecast in her Tween handle, saying it is nothing but a ploy to fan a gossip in favour of BJP.
