'I did not exit the exit poll debate – I was present for the full duration of the ‘show’ but yes, I did not wish to discuss such frivolous things in the midst of all-round tragedies where a country is mourning', says Pawan Khera.
While Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) fought the elections relying heavily on its work in the areas of education, healthcare and transport, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led an aggressive campaign dotted with controversial statements and severe criticism of Delhi Chief Minister.
In a series of tweets, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said the people of India have once again given a decisive mandate to the BJP-led NDA, and reposed their faith in Modi's leadership and vision of New India.
Most of the exit polls have predicted that the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is on course to retain power for a second term, riding on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's charisma like the way he swept to power in 2014.
After a deafening silence for the past three days, ever since polling for the final phase of the elections ended and multiple media channels screamed the return of Modi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi finally commented on the exit polls on Thursday.
