Bengaluru, Dec 1: Exit Polls are not always correct and do not correctly reflect the ground situation in the entire state, said Deputy Chief Minister and KPCC Chief D K Shivakumar on Friday and pointed out that the projections of exit polls in Karnataka went for a toss.
Explaining that he personally does not believe the exit polls, Shivakumar said: “Only those who spend time on the ground know the reality. Exit polls are samples-based and do not reflect the entire picture of a state.”
Asked if Congress legislators will be housed in Bengaluru in view of hung assembly projections in some of the states, “I am confident that Congress party will come to power in most of the states including Rajasthan. We have to work as per the party directives if it is needed.”
To a question on Infosys co-founder N R Narayana Murthy’s criticism of guarantee schemes, he defended the guarantees and said, “His suggestions are part of the people’s development. It is eventually government’s decision.
“It is government’s responsibility to address issued faced by farmers and poor class in view of rising prices,’’ he added.
