Pinarayi Vijayan calls poll surveys "big bluff, far from reality"
Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan today dismissed election surveys as "big bluffs" far from the reality, adding that his Left government will win 18 of the 20 Lok Sabha seats in the state. Mr Vijayan made the remark while addressing an election rally in Thiruvananthapuram.
The latest poll surveys have predicted a near washout for the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M)-led Left Democratic Front (LDF) candidates.
While one predicted just three seats for the LDF, another said the party will win only four, with the Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) slated to get 14 to 17 seats.
