Rajya Sabha member V. Hanumantha Rao has dismissed the survey done by NDTV projecting that YSR Congress Party would win majority of seats in Andhra Pradesh, if elections are held now. “How NDTV could favour Jagan Mohan Reddy who is facing serious charges of corruption. On one side, when entire national media has been targeting the UPA Government over coal scam based on the findings of CAG report, the NDTV is openly supporting Jagan Mohan Reddy while ignoring the cases of corruption against him. I am really wondered. Such surveys are not credible and their findings have proved wrong several times in the past. It is difficult to make electoral predictions, especially at a time when the general elections are to be held after about 18 months.
NDTV survey was aimed at creating sympathy for Jagan Mohan Reddy, who is presently lodged in jail on the charges of corruption. We don’t believe in all these surveys,” VHR concluded.
