New Delhi: After Congress, it`s Bahujan Samaj Party and Janta Dal (United) supremos Mayawati and Nitish Kumar who have sought ban on opinion polls.

The BSP on Monday wrote a letter to Election Commission to ban opinion polls saying that opinion polls do not reflect correct picture. Later, JD(U) followed it too.

BSP General Secretary Satish Chandra Misra had written the letter to EC.

"Such distorted opinions by agencies who are paid to conduct the same are susceptible to being managed or purchased to confuse the voters and public just before the polls" he further wrote.

All India Congress Committee (AICC) had earlier written a letter to the Election Commission to prohibit opinion polls ahead of the Assembly elections.

To this, BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain had tweeted, "Don`t people have right to opinion? Congress wants to impose undeclared emergency.”

Meanwhile, Congress leaders opine that opinion polls can be misused and they do not have credibility.
