Bhopal: Congress general secretary Digvijay
Singh today said he did not believe the exit poll prediction
that his party would win less than 40 seats in Uttar Pradesh
assembly elections.

"We all know that exit polls have gone wrong in the past,
and this will happen now again," he said, talking to PTI here.

Asked how many seats he expected Congress to win, Singh
said, "At least one hundred."

He added that exit polls could go wrong because of a
number of factors, including the fact that they are based on
responses of very few people concerned.
"In a state where crores of people cast their vote, you
cannot make any assessment simply by talking to a few thousand
persons," the Congress General Secretary said.

Asked what he thought of the exit polls` prediction that
Samajwadi Party could even get an absolute majority on its
own, Singh said, "Impossible."
