Exuberance over exit polls

Exit polls 2014 create a lot of excitement in view of nation's angst over the Modi-wave. These polls unanimously project BJP as the largest single party. The most conservative poll credits NDA with 249 seats. The lotus party is now uncontrollably optimistic and has taken it for granted that the NDA is forming the new government.

The Congress party seems reconciled to defeat and is hoping that its performance will be better than what the pollsters have suggested. Exit polls went horribly wrong in 2009 and also 2014. A hattrick of sorts may or may not be on the anvil. Loss for Congress will be welcomed by people who have become weary of countless scams under the watchless eyes of Manmohan Singh.

It is reported that Pranab Mukherjee had 'strategic discussions' with Sonia Gandhi yesterday. Is not the President expected to be apolitical? Sonia Gandhi has been instrumental in subverting ethics in all possible ways.
