If Gujarat Exit Polls are Proved True, Credit Will Go to Modi

aaj ki baat 14 decThe results of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh assembly polls will be out on December 18. As of now, all exit polls conducted by media houses predict BJP will retain Gujarat and storm back to power in HP. If the exit poll projections are proved true, all the credit will go to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Congress had been saying that the people of Gujarat are unhappy with BJP, but if the exit poll projections are proved true, it will reaffirm people’s trust in Modi’s leadership.

It is true that Rahul Gandhi toiled very hard this time in Gujarat. He tried to reset caste calculations, allied with young emerging leaders like Hardik Patel, Jignesh Mevani and Alpesh Thakore, made changes in ticket distribution on their advice, went to at least 28 temples, and did not speak about Muslims. Initially, it appeared that Rahul’s toil was bearing fruit, and Patidars’ anger could harm BJP, but in the final lap of campaigning, it was Modi who changed the atmosphere. He made the entire poll campaign Modi-centric, and issued emotional appeals to the people of Gujarat. The exit poll projections show this seems to have worked. Let keep our fingers crossed for the day of counting.
