Congress also said that the poll outcome on Saturday will be in its favour
Leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Samajwadi Party-Congress (SP-Congress) combine on Friday exuded confidence about victory of their respective party in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls, a day after exit poll results suggested the saffron party will have an edge over rivals.
BJP leaders said they would get a “two-third majority” in the 403-member Uttar Pradesh Assembly.
The SP sought to pick holes in the surveys, terming these as “nonsensical” and “influenced”.
Dismissing the exit poll results, the Congress said that the poll outcome on Saturday will be in its favour.
The counting of votes for Assembly polls held in five states, including Uttar Pradesh will take place on Saturday.
“The surveys have shown BJP will win. We are going to get a two-third majority in Uttar Pradesh. Wait for tomorrow,” senior BJP leader Om Mathur told reporters at Parliament House.
