With exit polls projecting a clear majority for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Punjab, state congress leaders rejected the projections.

The truth will come out March 10

In 2017, exit polls were all wrong. We will form the government with a clear majority. Only the results will tell the truth. Charanjit Channi, CM

Sidhu meets officials

  • Ahead of the counting of votes for the Assembly ballot, CPC leader Navjot Sidhu reached the Punjab Congress in Bhavan on Monday for a meeting to launch a campaign to join the party.
  • At the meeting, it was decided to enroll members from all nooks and crannies of the state into the party.
  • CCP polling station Jatinder Kocher and Pradesh deputy returning officer said state would offer maximum number of registrations

Citing 2017 exit poll forecasts, Congress leaders said the party had formed the government with 77 seats, adding that it would have a clear advantage this time around in Majha and Doaba regions.

Punjab affairs official Harish Chaudhary said the party would form the Punjab government with a clear majority. Developments in the final days before the poll worked in favor of Congress, he said. Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi has dismissed the investigation’s projections as baseless. “In 2017, exit polls were all wrong. We will form the government with a clear majority. Only the results will tell the truth,” he said. Former Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) chief Sunil Jakhar said, “Rather than exit polls, I will wait for the exact results of the poll.”

Without commenting on any of the surveys, Jakhar said the predictions would likely be wrong and the party would comfortably repeat the government.

CPC General Secretary (Organization) Pargat Singh said that by retaining its vote bank, the party would comfortably repeat the government. He said the party had the edge over others in the state.
