Only one day left in counting of votes and Congress president Rahul Gandhi has urged party men to be "alert in the next 24 hours" and be fearless in a tweet similar to Priyanka Gandhi's who posted a audio message on Sunday, when exit polls predicted a discouraging plot for the party. He also called the exit polls fake.
"The next 24 hours are important. Be alert and vigilant. Don't be afraid. You are fighting for the truth. Don't be disheartened by what the fake exit polls are propagating. Have faith in yourselves and the Congress. Your hard work will not be in vain, Jai Hindi," Rahul Gandhi tweeted in Hindi.
Exit polls after the last phase of voting for the Lok Sabha elections on Sunday concluded 300-plus for the BJP- led National Democratic Alliance and 122 for the congress and its allies. “Non-aligned” parties were given 114. The same night, appeal from Priyanka Gandhi to party workers that they should not fall for “ rumours”.
"My dear Congress workers, sisters and brothers... Don't let rumours and exit polls discourage you. This is being done just to break your determination. It is very important that you remain alert amid all this. Please continue to keep vigil outside strongrooms and counting centres. We are confident that our combined efforts will bear fruit," she said in the audio message.
Rahul Gandhi's "dare nahin (don't be afraid)" advice for party workers. In Uttar Pradesh, Congress workers sat overnight outside the EVM strongrooms in Meerut.
