New Delhi, Mar 5 (ANI): With most exit polls indicating that the Samajwadi Party will emerge as the single largest party in Uttar Pradesh, Congress Party on Monday disregarded speculations and said the survey reports are not always true.
"I have said this time and again that we should wait for March 06 before commenting on the elections results. Surveys have been done earlier as well, however their reports are not always true," said Congress General Secretary Janardhan Dwivedi.
"I would not like to comment further on the fate of these assembly elections. It is better that we talk about this once results are announced tomorrow," he added.
Dwivedi also clarified that no unauthorized person in the Congress Party has the right to issue statements for the entire party.
"In the earlier stages only the Congress Party had made it clear that it is contesting election with an aim to form a government. Every party in a democratic setup aims to come to power and ours is also the same viewpoint. Results will be declared tomorrow and we would express ourselves after that," said Dwivedi.
"No individual or group of individuals in the party has the right to make a decision on the party's behalf, it is a collective decision of the party and we stand by it," he added.
Union Steel Minister and Congress leader Beni Prasad Verma has stumped the Congress Party over his remark of a tie-up with Mayawati's Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in Uttar Pradesh.
Describing Samajwadi Party to be a 'party of goons', Verma earlier in the day said: "The democracy has been hurt whenever the Samajwadi Party (SP) came into power. The others do not do very good, but they do not hurt the democracy."
Verma had earlier on Sunday said that the Congress should forge an alliance with the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), as BSP chief Mayawati was thousand times better than Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav.
Congress Party had, however, played down Verma's comment, saying it was his personal opinion.
The Uttar Pradesh polls are being viewed as an opportunity for major political parties to re-establish their foothold in the country's fifth largest and most populous state.
A new 403-member state assembly will be elected in March.
The poll results will broadly indicate trends for the 2014 general elections. (ANI)
