Lucknow: Most exit polls on Sunday predicted that the BJP’s numbers may come down in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls but it would not face a major setback in Uttar Pradesh, where it had registered a spectacular victory by winning 71 out of the total 80 seats in 2014.

However, some TV channels gave edge to the alliance of the Samajwadi Party, the Bahujan Samaj Party and the Rashtriya Lok Dal over the alliance of BJP and the Apna Dal.

While Times Now predicted that the BJP could win 58 seats along with Apna Dal while the SP-BSP-RLD alliance may get 20 seats and the Congress just 2 seats, India TV predicted that the BJP will suffer losses in but will manage to get 49 seats. It claimed that the opposition alliance may bag 29 seats and the Congress was likely to win only two seats.

India Today predicted a massive majority for the BJP in Uttar Pradesh. According to it. the BJP may win 62-68 seats while the alliance of SP-BSP-RLD might win only 10-16 seats. Like others, it too predicted two seats for Congress.

The News 18 survey claimed that yhrr BJP, along with the Apna Dal, may get between 60 to 62 while the SP-BSP-RLD may win between 17 to 19 seats. It also predicted two seats for the Congress.

NDTV’s poll of polls has predicted BJP and Apna Dal winning 46 seats, the SP-BSP-RLD alliance winning 31 seats, and Congress winning three.

However, ABP news predicted that the BJP may face a setback in the state, being curtailed to 33 seats while the SP-BSP-RLD can win 45 seats. The Congress may win three seats.

 

Most Exit polls survey on Lok Sabha elections for Uttar Pradesh divided:

 

The Republic-CVOTER exit poll predicted 38 seats for the BJP and Apna Dal and gave 40 seats to the SP-BSP-RLD alliance and two to Congress.

The caste arithmetic of votes in Uttar Pradesh seems to be making a dent on the BJP’s final tally.

The Exit Poll survey revealed that despite the BJP’s 407 rallies in India’s biggest state, the alliance led by the SP and the BSP seems to be taking away a major chunk of seats from the saffron party.

The alliance (gathbandhan), as per the exit poll, could fetch 40 seats, giving a loss of 31 seats to the BJP.

The BJP(NDA) has been given 38 seats in the exit poll, a figure so low that it can disappoint Prime Minister Narendra Modi who spent most time canvassing in the state.

The Congress, scoring just 2, fails again to show any sign of improving its tally in a state where Priyanka Gandhi Vadra made a much hyped debut by being appointed General Secretary, in charge of Eastern UP.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi (Amethi) and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi(Rae Bareli) are the two possible winners for India’s oldest party in the region dominated by the Nehru-Gandhi family for the past 70 years, according to exit poll survey.

Trump knew exactly what was going on: Giuliani aide

Published

By

Washington: An aide to Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, has said that the US President “knew exactly what was going on” regarding efforts to pressure Ukraine into investigating Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, it was reported on Thursday.

Ukrainian-American businessman Lev Parnass, who is facing separate criminal charges, made the comments in an interview with MSNBC on Wednesday after letters, phone records, notes and flash drives were obtained from him earlier this week, the BBC said in a report.

Documents show that the Ukraine-born Parnas was in regular contact with Giuliani as well as Ukrainian officials, and suggests that the businessman was directly involved in trying to have Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky look into the Bidens.

In the interview, Parnas said Trump was “aware of all my movements”.

“I wouldn’t do anything without the consent of Rudy Giuliani or the President. Why would President Zelensky’s inner circle or (Interior) Minister (Arsen) Avakov or all these people or (former) President (Petro) Poroshenko meet with me?

“Who am I? They were told to meet with me. And that’s the secret that they’re trying to keep. I was on the ground doing their work,” he added.

Parnas further said that the President was lying and knew that unless there was an investigation into Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who was a director of a Ukrainian gas company, military aid to Kiev would be withheld.

He also claimed that the investigation was about digging up dirt on Joe Biden.

Meanwhile, some of the materials obtained show Parnas and Giuliani discussing the removal of Marie Yovanovitch, the then US ambassador to Ukraine, said the BBC report.

In Wednesday’s interview, Parnas claimed the only motivation to get Yovanovitch removed from her post was because she was in the way of the effort to get Ukraine to announce an investigation into Joe Biden.

Trump was impeached by the Democrat-controlled US House of Representatives on December 18, 2019 and is accused of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

The two articles of impeachment were sent to the Republican-majority Senate on Wednesday night, paving the way for the starting of a trial against the President.
