I don’t trust Exit Poll gossip. The game plan is to manipulate or replace thousands of EVMs through this gossip. I appeal to all Opposition parties to be united, strong and bold. We will fight this battle together

7:05 PM IST- TMC to retain grip in West Bengal despite BJP inroads. Here is News18’s IPSOS prediction for West Bengal
TMC: 25 to 28 seats
BJP: 3 to 7 seats
In the previous Lok Sabha elections in 2014, the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC had won 34 seats with a vote share of 39.8 per cent. BJP bagged only 2 seats.
CSDS professor Abhay Dubey says that BJP is contesting the highest number of Lok Sabha seats and in this regard, it is necessary for BJP to do well in this election. If Opposition could play its cards properly then they could have done better against the modi government. If there is anybody fighting against PM Modi and BJP in Uttar Pradesh, then it is BSP chief Mayawati. Even if the opposition had fought together in a good way, it would have been difficult for the BJP.
How top political parties fared in 2014?
Anil Anand, former senior assistant editor of DNA, says that this time the UPA government can return to power. Although it is doubtful whether Rahul Gandhi will become the Prime Minister or not, because the party which has the highest number of seats, the party will be able to make a claim for the prime minister’s post in power. Certainly nothing can be said about it that the Congress party will be able to get the most seats.
