New Delhi: Dismissing as unrealistic the projections of exit polls, NDA convenor Sharad Yadav said that the BJP-led alliance would get majority in the Lok Sabha.
“I have no faith in exit polls. The NDA will get majority and we will form the government headed by L.K. Advani,” he said.
Exit polls have shown NDA getting 185 to 196 seats in the 543-member House against 190 to 205 seats for UPA.
The JD(U) president also said that the leaders of different parties were in touch with various NDA leaders but declined to reveal their names.
Sources said that while BJP was in touch with AIADMK supremo Jayalalithaa, JD(U) leaders were talking to BJD and TDP — both constituents of the Third Front, which has been given a little over 100 seats in the exit polls.
NCP leader P.A. Sangma is understood to have promised to support the BJP-led alliance when he met Yadav a few days back to discuss future plans.
Yadav was, however, tight-lipped on the nature of talks Sangma had with him on 12 May.
Sangma had blamed Congress for bringing down the Meghalaya Progress Alliance Government in Meghalaya, of which NCP was an important component.
