Ramesh Chennithala rejects post-poll surveys; election results likely to be delayed, says CEO Meena
Just hours left for the Kerala Assembly election result, Opposition Leader Ramesh Chennithala has completely rejected the post-poll surveys, which predicts LDF's rule again. He said that people are with UDF and surveys conducted by media organisations are not scientific.
The senior Congress leader said that people have been supporting UDF since the beginning of the election. He even suggested that due care should be given while counting each vote and the candidates should be present as sabotage of the election is likely to happen.
Earlier, the UDF candidates have expressed their displeasure over the survey result announced by a Malayalam media organisation. UDF's candidate Anil Akkara said that the UDF will win the Vadakancherry seat. He even confirmed that the constituency will witness fierce competition, but he expects that the final victoryis for UDF. The constituency had gained wide attention following the Life Mission controversy.
Also, UDF candidate Dr SS Lal rejected the survey results which predicted that UDF will be pushed to the third position in the Kazhakoottam constituency. He added that he had competed in Kazhakoottam because he was hoping to win and that it was only speculation that he would go for third place.
Meanwhile, Chief Election Commission Teeka Ram Meena said that the Kerala Assembly election results will be delayed as there are too many postal votes. He said that this time they are not depending on the software called Trend. However, the CEO claims that necessary steps have been taken to get the exact result without any issue. He further added that the officers were properly trained for counting the votes.
