BRS founder president and chief minister Mr K Chandrashekhar Rao said he was confident of the party’s victory in the just concluded assembly elections. Scores of party leaders and candidates who met him at the Pragathi Bhavan on Friday, he reportedly said they were winning the election. There was no need to panic.
Right from the beginning, the party leaders have been dismissing the exit polls and exuding confidence in the party’s victory. BRS working president Mr KT Rama Rao too dismissed the exit polls and said they would come out victorious ultimately. He said they had their calculations and on the counting day, the truth would come out. Mr KCR reportedly told the party leaders not to be tense over the outcome.
The party won 88 seats in the 2018 elections. Taking into consideration the much talked anti-incumbency or candidates’ poor image, even if the party loses 30 seats, it should be getting the magic figure comfortably. One survey called the Naganna survey that came true in the last elections predicts a comfortable win for the BRS this time again. They worked at the ground level, unlike other survey agencies that depended on secondary sources.
Many a time, the exit polls conducted at the national level and several states proved wrong ultimately. “Exit polls are not exact polls,” the BRS party leaders say. Many of them are very confident of the party’s return to power in the Telangana state.
