Opinion polls to influence voters: Congress

Opinion polls to influence voters: Congress

The Congress on Wednesday trashed opinion polls giving an edge to the BJP in Gujarat and alleged that it was an attempt to influence voters.

Ashok Gehlot, AICC general secretary in-charge of Gujarat, said the Congress was working out tie-ups with like-minded parties in the state.

“Alliances and combinations are yet to emerge and here we have channels declaring victory for the BJP. This is a clear attempt to influence voters,” Gujarat Congress president Bharat Sinh Solanki said.

He said the party is in talks with JDU rebel Chhotu Bhai Vasava who voted for party candidates in the recent Rajya Sabha election from the state.

The NCP is also in touch with Congress, said its leaders hinting at Praful Patel establishing contact. Rahul Gandhi is set to campaign in South Gujarat from November 1 to 3.
