Karnataka Chief Minister H.D Kumaraswamy claimed that the impression of a Modi wave was being created across the country through the exit polls when there was none.

The exit polls on Sunday predicted that the NDA will retain power at the centre, while the Congress-led UPA may make some gains. The fate of NDA, UPA, and other political parties will be decided on 23rd May.
